Joyful Noise Presents
Crossing boundaries with refreshing honesty and evocative lyricism, Namvula’s music draws you into different worlds, yet remains firmly rooted in Africa.
The debut album titled Shiwezwa by singer-songwriter Namvula is causing excitement among reviewers. Namvula means ‘mother of rain’ in Zambia, where she was born of mixed Zambian-Scottish heritage. Her performance creates an intrepid new world that fuses folk, Zambian urban, Scottish heritage and London’s vibrant eclectic music scene.
