Sadig (Shiakh Eldin) El Gibril is of Sudanese origin and has been living in Belgium since 1993. In 1999 he obtained his master degree in music at the Lemmensinstituut in Leuven. In addition, he has been teaching ud classes in De Centrale since 1996.
With his group he brings a musical repertoire loosely based on the virtuoso classical Arab and Sudanese music, but wrapped in a contemporary jacket and decorated with a fine layer of Western varnish and lightly seasoned with a pinch of Afro jazz.
