Inspired by his time spent touring around Eswatini and Mozambique, ‘Milambi’ is a pulsating house track with intricate layers of afrobeat groove. Sun kissed textures dance across infectious tribal rhythm whilst Kidjo’s beckoning vocal leads the way with harmonious authority. The track’s foundations are made from extracts from Hugh Tracey’s extensive library of ‘African field recordings’ which looks to reinvigorate traditional African cultural for a modern audience. ‘Milambi’ is Nouvelle’s first release of 2020 after a busy year touring and putting out two mini album projects (‘Piano Pieces’ and ‘Atlas Internet Café’).
