Event Details

Nubiyan Twist The UK’s most promising afrobeat purveyors bring their mighty sound to La Belle Angele. With an epic 10 piece live show featuring a 4 piece horn section, 2 vocalists, electronics and an international (Brazil/UK) rhythm section, Nubiyan Twist performances are moving and unforgettable experiences which push the boundaries of genre and technical prowess Skirting between afrobeat, neo-soul, hip-hop and jazz with seamless virtuosity, they draw on myriad influences ranging from Erykah Badu’s to Fela Kuti to Nat King Cole. They’ve performed alongside luminaries such as Submotion Orchestra, De La Soul, Hot 8 Brass Band and Quantic to name a few on their own meteoric journey towards global recognition. Since their humble beginnings at Leeds College of Music, the band have performed on huge stages across the world. They were chosen by David Byrne to perform at Queen Elizabeth Hall for the South Bank’s Meltdown Festival, sold out London’s iconic Jazz Cafe, and have rocked festival stages from Fusion to Wilderness, Boomtown and Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival. “Complex, muscular, honeyed yet assertive” (The Independent) “One of the most exciting names on the UK music scene” (Rhythm Passport) Samedia Shebeen DJs open the night with a tropical soundtrack spanning old and new sounds of Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, Middle East and beyond.
