Grammy Nominated international recording artists Les Nubians have intrigued audiences for almost a decade with their inventive and glamorous Afropean style. The French-Cameroonian sisters Hélène and Célia Faussart created an international sensation with the 1998 release of Princesses Nubiennes, their debut CD. The duo’s sophisticated, alluring mélange of Afro-pop, bass ’n’ drums, electronica, hip-hop, and jazz influences has helped make them the most successful French-language act in the U.S. in more than a decade. They received a 2004 Grammy nomination in the Best Urban Alternative R&B category, along with Erykah Badu, Outkast, and Kelis, and have collaborated with the Black Eyed Peas, DJ Krush, Talib Kweli, and Youssou N’Dour. Les Nubians is known for their jazzy nuances, hard hitting drum 'n' bass lines, harmonious melodies, and conscientious proclamations.
