les nubians

featuring: black lily

every second tuesday of the month, black lily hold their parties at the 'la scene' club. black lily features exclusively female 'nu soul' performers. black lily is built on the concept of the philly nu soul scene. artists like jil scott and angie stone performed at black lily events in philadelphia. black lily in paris features american nu soul talents and french stars like 'les nubians'. les nubians achieved international success with their second album ‘one step forward’. they recorded the album in africa, america and europe. the parisian sister-duo, cecile and helen are so well regarded in the nu soul scene that they now spend half their time in philly. their style is 'afropean', a mixture of european and african music styles. like their music, les nubians are afropean: their mother is from cameroon and their father is french. after the gigs at the la scene, the female djs play hip-hop tunes. la scene is open daily from 20.00 to early in the morning.
