Nubiyan Twist – Freedom Fables

A joyful escape into head-swinging afro-funk...

2020 was a wild year. When the world feels increasingly unfamiliar, it’s important to find moments of solace. A moment to smile. A moment to dance.

Nubiyan Twist’s latest project offers this joyful escape. ‘Freedom Fables’ is a blissful mix of latin, soul, jazz and highlife – a fusion of musical styles that provides a timely reminder for us all to unify. Feeling stressed? Try a dose of this head swinging funk.

This is the type of record that should be blasted over a sun-drenched festival crowd. Summer 2021? Here’s hoping.

Dig This? Dig Deeper! Fela Kuti, KOKOROKO, Ibibio Sound Machine
