Sinkane In-store Tomorrow.

Attention all Bay Area dwellers. Sinkane will be playing a special in-store performance at Amoeba - SF tomorrow (3/2/13) at 1:30 PM. It's free and it's all ages.

Sinkane is an alias of Ahmed Gallab, a solo recording artist from Columbus, Ohio who sings and plays numerous instruments (drums, bass, guitar, and keyboards, just to mention a few). His percussion-heavy style of music draws from a wide range of influences, most noticeably free jazz (e.g., Pharoah Sanders) and shoegaze (e.g., My Bloody Valentine).

Born in Sudan, Gallab and his family fled to the United States when he was six years old. He made his debut in May of 2008 on Emergency Umbrella Records with the EP Color Voice. That same year, he toured as the drummer of Caribou and Of Montreal. A self-titled album was released in May 2009. His latest album, Mars, is out now via DFA.
