2024 sees Nubiyan Twist embark on a fresh musical odyssey with the announcement of their vibrant fourth album ‘Find Your Flame’. Over 12 tracks, the band seamlessly weave together global grooves, soul and jazz; expertly intertwined with electronic elements, horn-led melodies and spontaneous improvisation.
The heady, sun-drenched release is peppered with impressive collaborations, including the iconic Nile Rodgers who brings his trademark disco mastery to new single ‘Lights Out’.
Alongside Nile Rodgers, Nubiyan Twist have enlisted artists from across the globe including Seun Kuti and Mamani Keita as well as homegrown UK talent corto.alto, Ria Moran, K.O.G. & NEONE the Wonderer. The album also marks a significant evolution for the group, welcoming Sheffield-based vocalist Aziza Jaye to the forefront.
Bandleader and producer Tom Excell says, “As with the creation of all our albums, it’s a snapshot of our collective influences and journeys throughout the time it was made. A catharsis for our struggles, yet a vessel for our joy. Navigating through COVID, the magic of becoming a new parent, undergoing a vital leg amputation, recovering from car accidents, losing loved ones and forming new friendships have all shaped this music. But most importantly, the collaborative process helped reignite a liberating fire of resistance in each of us.”Contact
