About the event
Sudan Archives grew up in Cincinnati where she “messed around with instruments in the house” and took up violin in the fourth grade, teaching herself how to play the instrument by ear. When she discovered the violin playing style of Northeast Africa her eyes opened to the possibilities of the instrument. “The way they played it was different from classical music. I resonated with the style,’“ she says. She began mixing my violin into beats, fusing of folk music and electronic production. She honed her at-home style after moving to Los Angeles aged 19 to study music technology.
