Alsarah & The Nubatones LP Release Show In DC w/ DJ Underdog

Come through to Tropicalia on March 28th at 8pm for a very special Silt album release party with special guest DJ Underdog, the host of our #OKAYAFRICADC parties. Grab your tickets in advance and make sure you come out because the band's in town for one night only! In the meantime, watch Alsarah & The Nubatones' latest video for Silt lead track "Soukura" below.
