Les Nubians – Live Performance & Interview on NPR

Les Nubians have an upcoming album on Shanachie Records on April 19th, Nü Revolution; if you haven’t already, check out the video for “Veuillez Veiller Sur Vos Rêves” and the streaming audio for “Afrodance.” The Cameroonian/French-based duo recently stopped by NPR’s ‘Tell Me More’ for a live performance and a lovely interview in which we learn more about the concept of Nü Revolution. With all the turmoil in the world right now, the optimism of sisters Célia and Hélène is an essential part of their uplifting music.

“…It’s the evolution of a dream. It’s also the evolution and the revolution, through woman, through Eve. This album is how we materialize our dreams and how we formulate new dreams to create the future.” – Célia

Tyson’s comments on his music: “People forgot how to be stars… I’m trying to bring back authentic analogue music that sounds real. I wanted to make something horrible and very, very nasty, so when people heard it they would say ‘urgh’ but in a good way…”
