WMI PLUS At Home with Alsarah (Alsarah and the Nubatones)
WMI PLUS At Home experiences bring music from around the world into the comfort of your home. Renowned artists share their lives, instruments, and stories from their personal environments, bringing an intimacy and uniqueness to each event. These talks are led by fellow musicians, journalists, and ethnomusicologists. Live captioning will be provided during the event.
We are thrilled to provide these events for FREE. If you are able to make a donation of any amount while registering for this event, it will help us to keep the music playing. Thank you!

Join us for a special WMI PLUS At Home with Alsarah – singer/songwriter and founder of Alsarah and the Nubatones, who will chat with her sister and fellow band member, Nahid, in Alsarah’s kitchen as they prepare a meal. Born in Khartoum, Sudan, Alsarah and her family relocated to Yemen, finally settling in Brooklyn, NY where she has been residing since 2004. She is a self-proclaimed practitioner of East-African Retro-Pop music. The conversation will be followed by a Q&A with attendees.
WMI PLUS and WMI PLUS At Home experiences are supported by a grant from Con Edison and world music lovers like you. We thank you!
