Noumuso stands for nouvelle musique solar and is an intercultural project with top musicians from Senegal, Guinea, South Africa, Cuba and Switzerland. Timeless and at the same time modern African music produced in Switzerland!
Far away from westernized music business ideas, Noumuso puts the original sounds of African instruments into a new world, where they can touch without getting stuck in the schemes of traditional music. In 17 songs you can hear the result: a variety of sounds from a wide range of instruments and a fresh mix of African and African-American styles. Kora, djembé, doundoun, guitar and kalimba meet universal pianos and hip hop - inspired beats. Often instrumental, sometimes with vocals, it's the melodic beats that lead throughout the album, flirting with West African mandigue, jazz or neosoul vibe depending on the track. The lyrics are in malinke, sousou, english and french and deal with themes like patience, trust, freedom, cohesion, peace, love, joy and the future of our children. The album also features South African jazz pianist and Blue Note Record artist Nduduzo Makhathini. He is currently the most celebrated African jazz musician and winner of several awards. He is considered a leading figure of the strong young South African scene and deals, among other things, with the pre-colonial original ideas of African music and its healing effect. In April 2022 his 2nd album will be released by Blue Note. The fact that he will still be live on their album release tour in May 2022 shows his strong connection with Noumuso. Tour On the upcoming tour, in addition to some album songs, new, more vocal-heavy songs will be played. The encounter of the cora virtuoso Cissokho and piano superstar Makhathini and the strong rhythm section promises a concert experience in a class of its own.
