Les Nubians ft. Blitz the Ambassador – “Les Gens” (People)

Les Nubians‘ upcoming album, Nü Revolution, includes a handful of featured artists including Brooklyn-based Ghanaian MC Blitz the Ambassador. With this song, Paris-born sisters Hélène and Célia Faussart tackle the subject of gossip and soussou (rumors), as the rastas say.

“Gossips and are little mundane poisons. What people say about you is deformed from a mouth to an ear, to a mouth to another mouth!” – Hélène

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.
