Novalima Are Back With New Album & Tour| 27 May, 2015
We couldn’t be more thrilled to hear new music from the multi-piece collective, who gained acclaim for revolutionizing the music scene in their native Peru by bridging a longstanding divide between the mainstream and the minority Afro-Peruvian community, who have struggled against discrimination and cultural dissolution for generations.
Novalima will release Planetario on June 16 via Wonderwheel Recordings. The album’s name signals Novalima‘s musical growth and international connections – much of the album was recorded on tour when they collaborated with top local and international musicians.
There is a strong connection to Colombia created through a remarkable recording session in Bogota organized by members of La-33 including Sidestepper vocalist, Eka Muñoz, Pernett, and La Mamba Negra. The album also has offerings from global artists such as Marc de Clive Lowe (UK/NZ), Panko from Ojos de Brujo (Spain), and Kumar, a Cuban rapper based in Barcelona.
