    On Saturday, November 23rd, The Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series will host Alsarah & The Nubatones. Tickets are $20 for the general public, $18 for seniors, $10 for students, and $5 for children under 12. Arriving in the U.S. in the mid-1990s after conflict engulfed her native Sudan, Alsarah turned to music as a living link to her homeland, both as an ethnomusicologist and as a singer with a spellbinding voice and socially conscious lyrics. With percussionist Rami El-Aasser, bassist Mawuena Kodjovi, oud player Brandon Terzic, and background vocalist Nahid, Alsarah blends East-African tunes with Arabic sounds and traditions for a one-of-a-kind style she describes as “East African retro-pop.”
