Namvula creates an intrepid new world where folk and urban traditions of her Zambian homeland combine with her Scottish heritage and London’s vibrant eclectic music scene. Crossing boundaries with a refreshing honesty and evocative lyricism, Namvula’s music draws you into different worlds, yet remains 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 sitar player Anoushka Shankar. Joined by a stellar cast of some of the UK’s most respected African and jazz musicians, including bassist Liran Donin of Mercury-nominated Led Bib, and Senegalese percussionist Mamadou Sarr who tours with international star Baaba Maal, the group delivers evocative, honest, and ultimately uplifting performances.

Namvula’s debut album Shiwezwa is due for release shortly ahead of this tour.
