Sinkane (1)


Meet Ahmed Gallab. Better know by his stage name, Sinkane, he draws influence from his Sudanese upbringing to bring a uniquely universal sound heavy with distinctly Pan-African + American beats along with smooth and sincere vocals. Hardly new to the music scene, he's already worked with some of Canada's best known musical acts – Born Ruffians, Of Montreal and Toronto's own Caribou - both garnering a ton of attention as of recently.

His music video, "How We Be" is fused with nostalgic undertones and pays homage to Sinkane's hometown of Brooklyn. Shot in various locations across New York City, the video is an effortless juxtaposition between new and old, with young-gun classical and contemporary dancers showcasing their fancy footwork all throughout the concrete jungle and throwing it down... hard.

Give his album Mean Love a listen and be sure to check him out live in the Drake Underground on November 18th @8PM. Get your tickets in advance here.
