“Afro-Peruvian tradition collides with modern production techniques to create an infectious hybrid. Novalima are part of an exciting movement defining new directions in world music.” – Jason Bentley, Morning Becomes Eclectic at KCRW
“Like Gotan Project at their best, this Afro-Peruvian outfit takes the rhythmic and melodic forms of its traditional music and make something wholly vital and contemporary out them.” – The Independent (UK)
Since its formation in 2001, Novalima has been breaking down boundaries, uniting seemingly irreconcilable genres, communities and generations to create an inspiring movement that has revolutionized the music scene in their native Peru. Founded by four friends from Lima with a shared passion for both traditional Afro-Peruvian music and modern DJ culture, Novalima searches for the common ground between past and future, between tradition and innovation. Novalima has garnered critical acclaim from mainstream and underground media alike, a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album, and a featured spot in cult filmmaker Robert Rodriguez’s hit Mexploitation movie Machete. Novalima’s highly anticipated fourth studio album titled Karimba was released earlier this year on ESL music.
