Many musicians like to speak of versatility, but Nabihah Iqbal has better grounds than most. She boasts an MPhil (focused on African history) from Cambridge, experience working in human rights law and a black belt in Karate. Her latest album, ‘Weighing of the Heart’, is a big statement in two ways: first, because she’s taken her real name to stand proudly as a female British Asian artist and, secondly, because she’s moved her music in a bolder, more expansive direction.
Nabihah Iqbal is supported by Sans Soucis, singer-songwriter and composer, active since 2016 and releasing music independently since 2017. Sans Soucis’ music travels along a spectrum of genres that range from R&B to alternative pop, indie and jazz. She has previously played headline shows at iconic London venues such as Union Chapel, Rich Mix and O’Meara.
