Truly there is not another venue like Yoshi’s’! We love to play in Oakland (Bay Area) but especially Yoshi’s. The stage, food, staff, fans…….THE BEST! Les Nubians played 4 sold out shows including one Sunday matinee open to children. For us, to play our music for the new generation is beyond incredible. The children were so full of love, fun and enthusiasm and it really brightened our day. It was so nice to meet all the kids after the show. We even received gifts, hugs and all around beautiful vibes. Les Nubians works with a lot of children in France and Africa. Our hope is to bring some classes and workshops back to the Bay Area specifically for the children.
What an amazing time in Monterey! We were so blessed to be invited to perform a headlining spot on Friday September 17th on the Arena Stage. There must have been 5000 + people in attendance at that stage alone. We saw old fans and new fans alike. Spent some time at the merch table meeting a lot of you, signing CD’s and absorbing your enormous LOVE!!! Thank you so very kindly from all of us. The entire experience was truly incredible and a huge honor to play Monterey! A big THANK YOU to Tim Jackson for the invitation.
Waouh ! The Tour started yesterday in Los Angeles, the room was full of beautiful souls and spirits ready to share that NU Music with us and we had great fun and pleasure! Thanks to Doris Martel and Sarah for the Afro-fusion dance on stage, best luck with your dance company. Thanks to all of you who came, and again, sorry for the EP CD not being available for sale at the venue. We recommend for you to buy the EP online, it will be shipped to you, directly to your mailbox! As for the rest of the tour, CD’s are now in hand and readily available for sale at all the remaining shows of our Fall Tour. The tee-shirts are great, we are wearing ours right now….Next destination is Monterey Jazz Festival…. See you there ! LOVE. Helene of Les Nubians
