TunedIn music with Namvula

Namvula

Fusing 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, multi-award winning Zambian singer Maureen Lilanda, and sitarist Anoushka Shankar. She is working with some of the UK’s most respected African, jazz and folk musicians.

Namvula’s debut album, Shiwezwa, was released to critical acclaim in November 2014 and was among the Sunday Times’s Top 100 Albums: ‘…contender for debut album of the year.

xuberant, poetic and uplifting.’ Sunday Times. ‘…her songs sparkle.’ The FT. ‘Bright, bold and vivid!’ Roots magazine.
