Les Nubians happens to be one of my favorite groups. Their song “Makeda” is a phenomenal work of art so imagine my joy when I heard that they would headline at the Kimmel Center during the Pennsylvania International Festival of the Arts. The French group are well known for their Afro European style which blends a mix of traditional African rhythms with French Lyrics and a hint of Soul. This is a show that you will not want to miss!
Grammy® Nominated international recording artists Les Nubians have intrigued audiences for almost a decade with their inventive and glamorous Afropean style. This distinctive sound embodies the timeless vibrations of Miriam Makeba, Ella Fitzgerald, Doudou N’diaye Rose, Fela Kuti, Edith Piaf, The Fugees, and Soul II Soul. Recognized for their colorful auras, Les Nubians’ vogue is a fusion of Funkin’ Fashion and Modern Amazon. Adoring fans pay tribute to the French/Cameroonian sister duo for their continuous flow of jazzy nuances, hard hitting drum ‘n’ bass lines, harmonious melodies, conscious proclamations and humanitarian endeavors.
