Listen: King Kunta – Kendrick Lamar Cover by Sudan Archives

:: Awesome!

Sudan Archives is an African folk violinist and electronic music producer based in Los Angeles, CA. Sudan began playing the violin at age eight in her hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio, where she also played in various school and church choirs.

Her debut EP – Golden City – was self-produced on an iPad in her parent’s basement. Two years later, she is releasing her first full-length album, the self-titled – Sudan Archives.

While classically trained, Sudan finds inspiration from the various fiddle styles of Africa and aspires to lead an all female orchestra.
