Les Nubians

Michele Norris speaks with Helene and Celia Fassart, who form the group Les Nubians. They talk about how their music blends together musical influences from their youth: jazz, soul and traditional African rhythms. And the Fassarts tell Michele how their French lyrics have been received by English-speaking audiences. Their latest CD is called One Step Forward.
