Hailed as the ‘Diva of the Sudanese desert’ Sudanese-Italian singer Amira Kheir has been enchanting audiences around the world with a sound inspired by traditional music from her homeland Sudan and anchored in experimental Jazz and Soul. The result is a unique style of ‘Sudani-Jazz’ that gives tasters of Sudan’s rich musical heritage of distinctive Saharan blues and Sufi music whilst being reflective of the artist’s key Jazz and Soul musical upbringing.
Following the release of her critically acclaimed debut album ‘View From Somewhere’ this accomplished vocalist has been steadily rising in the World music and Jazz circuits appearing on line and on air including in BBC 3′s ‘World on 3′, BBC World Service Network Africa, BBC Arabic and BBC Persia. She has performed internationally on some of the world’s biggest stages and festivals from the London Jazz Festival to the Festival Au Desert in Mali. 2013 saw Amira tour internationally with her Quartet as part of the ‘World Sessions’ Tour, as well as cross the bridge into film when she was commissioned to write and perform a live score for Ernst Lubitch’s landmark silent film “Sumurun” as part of the 2013 Bird’s Eye View Film Festival celebrating women in film. 2014 saw her re-commissioned to perform the live score for "Sumurun" as well as headlining Womad Charlton Park's 'BBC 3 Charlie Gillett stage.
As a young singer, musician and composer, Amira draws from her own multicultural background to create music that explores themes of home, belonging and transcendental spirituality. Her music is evocative of Northern Sudan’s desert landscape and celebrative of its ancient culture, but recognising of the world’s multitude realities and rooted in a desire to bring people together. This young artist is rapidly establishing herself as an important new voice in African music.
