“…Nubian music, I learned, originally drew inspiration from the Nubian landscape. However, since their displacement, Nubian musicians have been pulling from other influences, such as Western and Arabic pop rhythms and instruments.
In its fusion of traditional and modern elements, the music that Nubian musicians have produced over the last 60 years reflects the way that displaced Nubian people have adapted to their new lives in new homes. This music is a record of the conciliation between traditional ways of life and those of adopted homes; between rural music and the sounds of big cities.”
