Reports: Music in Sudan

The Players
Many of the best international touring musicians reappear in different guises. To give just one example, both Abdel Gadir Salim's Merdoum Kings and the Abdel Aziz el Mubarak Orchestra feature violinist Mohammed Abdallah Mohammediya, bass-player Nasir Gad Karim, accordionist AbdelBagi Hamoda and sax player Hamid Osman. They and other familiar names have turned up backing Balabil, Hussein Shendi and Kabli.
