This week at [email protected] we’re bringing the new star of Nubian pop to Dumbo, with a special pointe ballet experience to open. A solo show by Priscilla Fusco, “Obelisk, beetles, empire,” takes over the Gallery.

Live at the Archway is DUMBO’s signature series: featuring dynamic musical performances + spectacle opening acts for kids & kidults + a pop-up art gallery + interactive art experiences, in a magical, only-in-DUMBO setting. Always free, all ages, + rain or shine.

Alsarah & the Nubatones was born out of many conversations between Alsarah and Rami el-Aasser about Nubian ‘songs of return’—modern migration patterns and the cultural exchanges between Sudan and Egypt. Inspired by both the golden age of Sudanese pop music of the 70s and the New-York effervescence, Alsarah & The Nubatones have built a repertoire where an exhilarating oud plays electric melodies on beautiful jazz-soul bass lines, and where sharp and modern percussion breathe new life to age-old rhythms.
