Novalima will be performing at globalFEST 2011 at New York City’s Webster Hall (125 E. 11th St.) on January 9.
Originally the product of a long-distance musical collaboration between four Peruvian friends who adored Afro-Peruvian traditions and global DJ culture, Novalima uses cutting-edge sounds to explore the rhythmic and vocal treasures of Peru’s once denigrated African-roots community.
Novalima unites cosmopolitan musicians with traditional Afro-Peruvian masters, including renowned percussionists and drummers. This groundbreaking collaboration has made a major step toward greater understanding—as well as hip, smart dance music.
