Crafting a stunning contemporary take on East African music, Amira Kheir combines Sudanese music with Nubian and Niloitic melodies. Brushed with soul, jazz, rock and electric desert blues, her stellar/unparalleled sound has seen her nominated for the 2019 Songlines Awards for Best Artist and dubbed “The Diva of the Sudanese Desert” by the BBC.
An artist able to write transversal, culture-crossing music, her live shows exude a magnetic communication between her spell-binding vocal abilities and her synergetic band members. With three critically acclaimed albums under her belt, her current sound encapsulates a spell-binding celebration of ancient mystical East African roots catapulted into an electric futuristic outer-space desert soundscape.
