Nilotic Groove: born in Khartoum, raised in Paris

By Alison Hird, Isabelle Martinetti

Ghandi Adam and Nouredeen Gibreel Yousif have traded Khartoum for Paris. And they want to carrying on doing what they do best: making music. We met them at the recently opened Atelier des Artistes en Exil - a multi-cultural hub for refugee artists - which provides the best conditions for developping their "Nilotic Groove" and vision of connected music.

Adam and Yousif perform with their Lamma Orchestra project on 8 December at MC93, Bobigny, as part of the Africolor festival. Follow the band on facebook
