Swiss DJ, producer and filmmaker Pablo Nouvelle release his genre spanning afrobeat single ‘Milambi’ featuring the iconic Grammy-winning African vocalist Angélique Kidjo. The track arrives alongside a beautifully edited music video made up of archival footage filmed by esteemed ethnomusicologist Hugh Tracey showcasing sweeping African landscapes and tribal dance rituals.
The single is the first track from Nouvelle’s upcoming EP which is out 7th February 2020.
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’).
