'Quiet Revolutions' Album Launch at Rich Mix

April 19, 2018

A cross-cultural party with the launch of Namvula’s highly anticipated second album, Quiet Revolutions. Exploring aspects of African female hood, Quiet Revolutions has been hailed as “a contemporary masterpiece” (Jazz FM), with Namvula being described as “our very own Joni Mitchell, without the protest but with the sensitivity” (DJ Ritu). This follows on the back of her critically acclaimed debut album, Shiwezwa, which was selected as one of the Best 100 Records of 2014 by The Sunday Times. 

 

The song-sculptress digs deep into her roots and inspirations on stage, with overflowing melodies that transport audiences on musical travels across Africa and beyond. Creating an intrepid new world where folk and urban traditions of her Zambian homeland blend with London’s vibrant eclectic music scene, Namvula’s music crosses boundaries with a refreshing honesty and evocative lyricism.

 

Namvula has collaborated and shared the stage with artists including legendary South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela, sitarist Anoushka Shankar, and local Zambian singing legend Maureen Lilanda. She is backed by a stellar band of some of the UK’s most respected African and jazz musicians, including Mercury-nominated bassist Liran Donin and saxophonist Chris Williams, and percussionist Mamadou Sarr (Baaba Maal).
