The 14th London African Music Festival presents NAMVULA (Zambia/UK)

September 21, 2016 @ 7:30 PM - 11:00 PM

| £12.50
NAMVULLA

The 14th London African Music Festival presents NAMVULA (Zambia/UK) who fuses the folk and urban traditions of her Zambian homeland and her Scottish roots with London’s eclectic music scene, Namvula blends African sounds and rhythms with Latin, jazz and folk into uplifting and emotive songs. Crossing boundaries with a refreshing honesty and evocative lyricism, Namvula’s music transports listeners into different worlds, whilst staying firmly rooted in African soil.

One of the few Zambian artists performing in Europe, Namvula has collaborated and shared the stage with artists including legendary South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela and sitar player Anoushka Shankar. She is also working with some of the UK’s most respected African, jazz and folk musicians.

She made her mark with a brilliant and current album Shiwezwa. Tonight she will play from that album  and soon to be released new album.
