Sinkane unveils new track 'Ya Sudan'

With his eagerly-awaited new album set to drop near the end of the month, Sinkane has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Ya Sudan' sees the frontman pay homage to his homeland, which couldn’t be more apt after Sudan’s dictator Omar El-Bashir was ousted last week after weeks of mass protests, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Everybody' and 'Dépaysé' in previewing his seventh LP, also called 'Dépaysé', which is set to arrive on the 31st May via City Slang.

Following the recent fall of Sudanese president Omar El-Bashir's dictatorship, Sinkane's Ahmed Gallab comments, “I am so inspired with how the recent uprising in Sudan has unified Sudanese people all over the world. I feel like we are truly understanding our identity. It feels inclusive and welcoming. Sudan is one of the most diverse places on Earth. From the Nuba Mountains to Port Sudan. Dongola to Darfur. Kassala to Khartoum. We are people made up of different languages, cultures, and religions. Our differences create our beautiful and rich identity. As for me, growing up outside of Sudan has given depth to my identity. It has shown me a part of myself that I never knew existed. I think that this is relatable among all children of the diaspora. This is the message of 'Ya Sudan'.

"Being Sudanese is about being yourself unapologetically. Not letting anybody define who you are. This song is for the Kandakas who have been at the forefront of toppling Omar El-Bashir. And the strong men and children who stand beside them. And all of us outside of Sudan standing together showing the world our resilience. There is no better time than now to be Sudanese."
