Les Nubians set to headline at the MTN Bushfire Festival 2015

Les Nubians - MTN Bushfire Festival - 2015

Grammy nominated Les Nubians have been synonymous with a unique Afro/European Neo-Soul sound and style for quite some time now. They gleam with ambience, the magic, the chic mystique and that ‘je ne sais quois’ that most typical Neo-Soul artist couldn’t deliver.

And even though they may not equal the mainstream Neo-Soul artists out there on sheer music industry numbers alone; the odds against Les Nubians however considering their latest album ‘Nu Revolution’ – qualify Celia and Helene’s success as being damn near phenomenal.

“Africa is our past, present and future. This album [Nu Revolution] is about accepting and rejoicing through our body and mind that Africa is vibrant and 10,000,000 times alive! Africa for the future also to say that we have to prepare the future of the continent. It’s in the NOW that we create the future – action time is now!” Les Nubians, 2015
