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

Les Nubians – New Album Nü Revolution Out April 19th

Les Nubians are back with a new album, featuring “Veuillez Veiller Sur Vos Rêves” (Don’t Let Your Dreams Fall Asleep) and “Afrodance” (streaming below). The new album, Nü Revolution may be the most impressive representation of Les Nubians’ Afropean Soul to date. Featuring special guests ranging from African music legend Manu Dibango, whose “Soul Makossa” crossover classic gets a politically charged make-over, to indie soul icon Eric Roberson, with South African pop stars Freshly Ground, Ghanian-American MC Blitz The Ambassador and Polish MC John Banzaï along for the ride. Somehow, Les Nubians manage to make the blend of so many diverse elements seem logical and organic; it flows quite naturally from their multicultural lives.

Nü Revolution will be released on April 19th on Shanachie Entertainment.
