Nubiyan Twist image

Nubiyan Twist are an incendiary live act that blend afrobeat, dub, neo-soul, hip-hop and jazz with seamless virtuosity, drawing on myriad influences ranging from Erykah Badu to Fela Kuti; Tony Allen to Mulatu Astatke . The 10 piece band’s performances are sensational; grooving with sophisticated club rhythms from all over the world and across genres. Two singers, four horn players and a killing rhythm section transport you from Kinshasa to Addis to New York and Havana – a brilliant feel-good dance-floor filling band.
