Hello dear fans & friends……..

We know it has been a while since we last updated our news so here goes. 2013 has been fabulous thus far! Les Nubians just returned from several amazing shows on the U.S. west coast including Seattle, Oakland, San Francisco and the Irie Reggae on the River in Garberville. It is always so nice to re visit places that feel like home to us and see old and new friends alike. We want to extend a HUGE thanks to all that came out to our shows.

Over the July 4th weekend we performed at the legendary Essence festival in New Orleans LA at the Superdome alongside artists like Beyonce, Brandy, LL Cool Jay and so many others. It had been a while since we were in New Orleans and we hope to return soon!

On that same July 4th weekend, Les Nubians performed at Celebrate Brooklyn to an enormous and energetic crowd. Brooklyn is where we now call home and we could not have been more thrilled to play for you all on such a beautiful evening! We added some photos from our night in Brooklyn below.

“We love Les Nubians! What a fabulous show they put on, truly spoke to all of Brooklyn and they were all such a joy to work with…a true pleasure to host them on our stage at Celebrate Brooklyn!” – Dianne Eber, Celebrate Brooklyn

On the horizon………Please come see us this September as we have a string of dates in Alexandria VA, Minneapolis MN & Chicago IL. We will be performing at some wonderful rooms. We also have a show that will be announced very soon back in NYC so do stay tuned!

Enjoy these images from Celebrate Brooklyn and we are looking forward to seeing you down the road!

Love Hélene, Célia and the Nubians crew! xxxooo
