With her band Alsarah and the Nubatones, Alsarah brings a modern sensibility to the music she grew up with in Sudan.
She talks to host Abdul-Rehman Malik about developing her unique sound, the music she carried with her when she left home, and how the public library played a crucial role in her artistic awakening.
