Sinkane’s Ahmed Gallab never put down roots when growing up. Born in London, the multi-instrumentalist also spent time growing up in Sudan and Ohio. Similarly, his musical output pulls from multiple traditions – West African, krautrock, disco, jazz – swirling them together into the kind of danceable gumbo that eclecticists go nuts for. He’s also the music director of the Atomic Bomb! Band – a sometime supergroup that includes members of Antibalas, Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem – devoted to playing the music of Nigerian musical legend William Onyeabor. His newest album, this year’s Life & Livin’ It, has raised Sinkane’s profile considerably thanks to
catchy leftfield jams like “Telephone” and “Favorite Song.” Opener Eric Slick is best known as the drummer for Dr. Dog, but is currently branching out with his own solo project.
