Feeling a bit camera shy


Alaaeldin is a childhood prodigy. He is known in exiled Sudanese communities around the world, and of course, in Sudan. He is influenced by players like Abdel Gadir Salim. He has recorded with many artists in Sudan, Egypt, and Libya. Alaaeldin's music is fit to be performed in concert and dance halls alike, both indoor and outdoor. Alaaeldin can put together a small or large ensemble to play his music for intimate parties, and sit down restaurants. He can provide a hyped electrified sound, and a traditional folk sound.

Alaaeldin is a master Oud player (a North African Lute) with unmistakable and entrancing vocal talent. He sings in Arabic, and looks forward to meeting and working with a singer who can communicate his messages in English someday.

Alaaeldin began forming a group, Sudanda, in 2003 in Vancouver B.C. He has rehearsed the group in over 18 original compositions and they have played in most all of Vancouver's cultural establishments.
The music is mature, and based in the modern presentation of folk music. The repetoire ranges from funked out reggae grooves, to hip-hop, traditional songs, polyrythmic North African tunes, and love ballads. His songs describe his escape from Sudan through Libya, his estrangement from his homeland, and his search for a new life in Canada.
