This article is a convenient one-stop-shop for all things beautiful and Sudanese. Here are 5 sudanese influencers that you need to check out!
Travellingsudania, known as Marwa, is a London-based Sudanese photographer with real talent. Her page seems to shine a light on the beautiful Sudanese traditions and culture, and the striking but commonly overlooked details people seem to miss. Her page follows a very relaxing theme such as nature, calming and thought-provoking images that would work beautifully hung up on a wall, or even used as a reference for artists looking for inspiration for their next piece. Seriously gorgeous and nostalgic photography, you’ll definitely want to see more! Find Marwa on Instagram: @travellingsudania.

3. The Confluence
All right, this page in one word? Original. We have seen nothing like page and we doubt you would have too!
The page belongs to Noon, who creates a variety of eye catching art pieces that are bound to stun you. Lately, we notice she has had a focus on Islamic art. She uses crisp-lines and symmetry, making her pieces perfectly fitting for a minimalistic home look and feel. On top of that, she does commissions for couples and art with a focus on Sudanese culture, which is something that we cant seem to get enough of!
Ran by Sudanese husband and wife, Ola Labib and Ramey Daoud, KashtaLabPodcast is definitely a breath of fresh air. Easy to access, weekly Spotify podcasts on super interesting topics? How about yes!
The topics they choose for their podcasts are very well thought out, awareness raising and ENTERTAINING! Topics on first hand wont be very Sudan-focused, or they might strike you as that, but there always seems to be a link to the motherland in these podcasts, which is something that we appreciate coming from the Diaspora content creating pool.
Doing your make-up or cooking? You know where to go!
