Rasha is a uniquely gifted Sudanese singer, musician and song writer who has had a global presence in the international music scene for over 25 years.
Rasha’s musical style is a fascinating amalgamation of styles including the centuries old musical traditions of the Nubian culture, rhythms of central Sudan, the tom-tom beats of the African Sahel, echoes and influences of North African, Arabic and Andalusian (flamenco) sounds, modern blues, jazz and reggae. A mosaic of sounds that creates music that is deeply rooted in the culture of Sudan and yet influenced and shaped by many other genres, the result is something very spectacular. Rasha mainly sings in her mother tongue- Arabic, but also performs in Spanish, English, Nubian and Creole. She has performed across Europe, in Colombia, Brazil, Sudan, Senegal, Egypt and the USA.
