Creating an intrepid new world where folk and urban traditions of her Zambian homeland blend with London’s vibrant eclectic music scene, Namvula crosses boundaries with a refreshing honesty and evocative lyricism, transporting listeners into different worlds whilst staying firmly rooted in African soil.

Namvula has collaborated and shared the stage with artists including legendary South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela, sitarist Anoushka Shankar, and local Zambian singing legend Maureen Lilanda.

She is backed by a stellar band of some of the UK’s most respected African and jazz musicians, including Mercury-nominated bassist Liran Donin and saxophonist Chris Williams, and percussionist Mamadou Sarr (Baaba Maal, Angelique Kidjo).

Her debut album, Shiwezwa, and her sophomore album, Quiet Revolutions, were both produced by bassist Liran Donin and mixed by Sonny Johns (Fatoumata Diawara), and received with critical acclaim.
