Sudan Archives Sudan Archives LP


23 year-old violinist and vocalist, Sudan Archives writes, plays, and

produces her own music. Drawing inspiration from Sudanese fddlers,

she is self-taught on the violin, and her unique songs also fold in

elements of R&B, and experimental electronic music.

Sudan Archives grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she “messed around

with instruments in the house” and took up violin in the fourth grade,

eventually 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, and I was like, ‘Maybe I

can use this style with electronic music,’” she says.

This fusing of folk music and electronic production was the turning point

for Sudan. “I started mixing my violin into beats,” she says, “It wasn’t

complicated — I’d just sing straight into the iPad.” She honed her at-home

style after moving to Los Angeles aged 19 to study music technology, and

after a chance encounter at a Low End Theory party with Stones Throw

A&R and Leaving Records owner Matthewdavid, she signed with Stones

Throw. At the very start of her musical career, she’s already won plaudits

from the likes of the New York Times and Pitchfork, and played live at

experimental festival Moogfest
