Rasha is a Sudanese singer, musician and songwriter who has had a global presence in the international music scene for over 30 years. Rasha’s unique style comes from her desire to share the beauty and traditions of the diverse music from Sudan with her own contemporary twists making it accessible to everyone the world over. Rasha’s music 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 an influences of North African, Arabic and Andalusian (flamenco) sounds, and jazz.  Through her career Rasha has collaborated with Youssou N’Dour, K’naan, Geoffrey Oryema amongst many others.
