Having dropped her impressive single “Come Meh Way” just last month Sudan Archives returns with her debut EP. The gifted 23 year old self taught violinist from Cincinnati writes, plays, and produces her own music. Drawing inspiration from Sudanese fiddlers, her sounds takes in elements of R&B, and experimental electronic music.
After discovereing the violin playing style of Northeast Africa, her eyes opened to the possibilities of the instrument. “The way they played it was different from classical music. I resonated with the style, and I was like, ‘Maybe I can use this style with electronic music,'” she says.
Her self-titled EP is an extraordinary debut release. Over six tracks, Archives packs an array of sparkling ideas into just over fourteen minutes. Layered harmonies, violin strings and enchanting vocals are all fused together with the hip-hop beats.
Press play and get lost in the music.
