Video: Les Nubians 'Veuillez Veuillez Sur Vos Reves' + New Album, 'Nü Revolution'

Watch Les Nubians' video for 'Veuillez Veuillez Sur Vos Reves' and get the scoop on their album, 'Nü Revolution'

Les Nubians are back with a new album, featuring “Veuillez Veiller Sur Vos Rêves” (Don’t Let Your Dreams Fall Asleep) and “Afrodance” (streaming below). The new album, Nü Revolution, may be the most impressive representation of Les Nubians’ Afropean Soul to date. Featuring special guests ranging from Cameroonian legend Manu Dibango, whose “Soul Makossa” crossover classic gets a politically-charged make-over, to indie soul icon Eric Roberson, with South African pop stars Freshly Ground, Ghanaian-American MC Blitz The Ambassador and Polish MC John Banzaï along for the ride. Somehow, Les Nubians manage to make the blend of so many diverse elements seem logical and organic; it flows quite naturally from their multicultural lives.
