NUBAMBU, a Chicago Urban Fusion band whose sounds are as diverse as its cross-cultural musicians. They will get us to dance with their unique and highly contagious danceable Latin-Reggae rhythms. Their influences range from all different corners of the world and blend together in an original Chicago style urban fusion sound. The band members are from France, Venezuela, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, the United States, and Peru. Their music is multilingual, street-smart and cutting-edge lyrics with a twist that fuse together different styles. Get a taste of Nubambu on our YouTube commercial here
