Ghandi Adam and Nouredeen Gibreel Yousif have traded Khartoum for Paris. And they want to carrying on doing what they do best: making music. We met them at the recently opened Atelier des Artistes en Exil - a multi-cultural hub for refugee artists - which provides the best conditions for developping their "Nilotic Groove" and vision of connected music.
