Novalima

Wills Glasspiegel for NPR

Novalima is out to stretch the possibilities of a big band. They blend the very primitive, such as a donkey jaw bone for percussion, with burbling electronics. Beginning as a long-distance project between friends, Novalima has evolved into a collaboration between musicians of all backgrounds, traditional and urban. When they perform, traditional Peruvian instruments like the quijada complement house beats. Combining their love for Afro-Peruvian musical tradition and global DJ culture, Novalima sticks to its roots. They kept the crowd dancing at Webster Hall during globalFEST 2011.
