Dua Saleh @ The Pinhook
October 13 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Dua Saleh comes to Durham as part of Duke Performances’ Building Bridges series, which since 2018 has showcased the work of US-based Muslim artists who engage with questions of personal and spiritual identity across a range of genres: from the traditional (maqam, Gnawa) to the contemporary (hip-hop, jazz, R&B, punk). At The Pinhook, Saleh brings this hybridity of perspective as a queer Muslim Sudanese-American artist to bear, in a way that acknowledges but ultimately transcends these classifications. The result is a music deeply in conversation with their African ancestry and the future possibilities of the diaspora: a sound that collapses the distance between global and local, personal and political.
