The Grammy-nominated international Hip-Hop, R&B duo "Les Nubians’" multicultural sensibilities span from Afro-Jazz to British Break Beat to Cameroonian Hip-Hop. Their latest CD, included in the collection, was recorded all over the world; New York, Paris, Bordeaux, London, Marseilles, and San Francisco, and is a fusion of urban poetry from the most promising poets of the urban underground, and modern music, including World Beat samplers, Hip-Hop inspired rhythms, American rappers, global Afrobeat and R&B!
