Every once in a while you catch wind of an artist who actually walks the walk and talks the talk of unabashed individuality. If that’s your jam, you’ll enjoy Sudan Archives.
A self-taught violinist, producer and singer, Sudan Archives’ unique style combines inspiration from Sudanese fiddlers (how cool is that?!) and R&B to create music that’ll have you bopping your head and occasionally doing a jig. In an interview with COLLiDE, Sudan Archives talks about two artists who’s music has had an impact on her: Juldeh Camara, a griot and Nyanyero (one-string fiddle) player from Gambia, and Jimi Hendrix. Talk about diversity of influence.

Of all the Sudan Archives tracks I love, I’ve chosen Glorious – from her 2019 album titled Athena – for this Music Monday because the music video is amazing, and the song is just mix of hype and chill to take you into the week. So prepare for an audiovisual delight, and have a great week!

In this day and age, some people are still asking silly questions about whether or not other people are real nerds. I know, it’s absurd, but that’s the world we live in.
The good news is that there are other people who are just minding their business and letting their flags fly high. People like Rihanna, our Queen who refuses to release new music. People like Sampa The Great.Read more
The first Bollywood movie I watched on Netflix was Baahubali, and it was a wild ride. If you love hyper-dramatic movies with beautiful sets, great music, and plot lines and special effects that are AMAZING but show that the movie takes you seriously neither as a concept, nor as a person? Watch both Baahubali movies and thank me when you pick yourself up off the ground.
Now, for those of you who prefer your entertainment to take you seriously as a person, a concept, or both – Solo may be more your speed. Led by sometimes charming, sometimes frightening Dulquer Salmaan, Solo is a beautiful journey in four parts, exploring themes of love and loss.Read more
