Novalima is an authentic band that blends Afro-Peruvian music with Electronica, Latin American beats and other contemporary genres, uniting tradition and innovation.
While their sound is futuristic and cutting-edge, the roots of Novalima’s music reach back hundreds of years. Over the years, the soul and rhythms of Africa melded with the melodies and instruments of Europe and the Andes. The result is rich musical repertoire that makes part of Peruvian popular culture.
In 2015 Novalima recorded their newest album, Planetario, released on Wonderwheel Recordings (New York). The album’s name points to Novalima’s continued growth and international connections – much of the album was recorded on tour when they collaborated with top local and international musicians. There is a strong connection to Colombia created through a remarkable recording session in Bogota organised by members of La-33 including Sidestepper vocalist Eka Muñoz, Pernett and La Mamba Negra. The album also brings in artists from around the world such as Marc de Clive Lowe (UK/NZ), Panko from Ojos de Brujo, and Kumar (Cuban rapper based in BCN).
