Sharhabeel Ahmed & His Pioneering Band
An auspicious beginning, Sharhabeel Ahmed and his band first performed to inaugurate the National Theatre, in Omdurman. Known as “The Kind of Sudanese Jazz,” Sharhabeel is a singer-songwriter whose band members are largely the output of creative neighborhood talent. Among the band’s members are Sharhabeel’s guitar-playing wife, who holds the distinction of being the first Sudanese female musician to venture into this field. The band has a long history of public, private and international events as well as festivals both in and outside of Sudan. A wealth of recorded material showcased the group as innovative and varied, and brought it a large following of fans. Sharhabeel has composed over one hundred songs.
