There are myths that transcend all perception of space-time and Sudan Archives is clear proof of this.
Violinist, singer, songwriter and producer Brittney Parks joins Caprichos de Apolo on the 25th of November, as part of her international Homecoming Tour. Based in Los Angeles, she releases her second album, "Natural Brown Prom Queen", the 9th of September via Stones Throw Records.
This second album is about race, femininity and the fiercely loyal and loving relationships that are at the core of Sudan's life. It also appears as a new and unique way of incorporating her beginnings as a violinist across different musical genres.
She has already released three singles so far: "Home Maker", "Selfish Soul" and "NBPQ (Topless)", which have been praised by The New York Times, The Fader, FLOOD Magazine and Pitchfork.
As Sudan Archives – not even her own mother uses the real name – she combines exotic and refined R&B with hip-hop, folk, experimental electronic music and West African rhythms and melodies.
We saw it on her first EPs, "Sudan Archives" (2017) and "Sink" (2018), and also on "Anthena" (2019), her critically lauded debut album.
