Lunchtime Concert at Symphony Hall Namvula

Thursday 10th November – 1pm

Namvula (Zambia / Scottish)null

Fusing the folk and urban traditions of her Zambian homeland and her Scottish roots with London’s eclectic music scene, Namvula blends African sounds and rhythms with Latin, jazz and folk into uplifting and emotive songs. Crossing boundaries with a refreshing honesty and evocative lyricism, Namvula’s music transports listeners into different worlds, whilst staying firmly rooted in African soil. One of the few Zambian artists performing in Europe, Namvula has collaborated and shared the stage with top international artists, and has worked with some of the UK’s most respected African, jazz and folk musicians.

Namvula is also a creative music-making and choral workshop facilitator and believes in the power of music to uplift and engage.
