Les Portes Du Souvenir
Label: Parlophone France
Les Nubians are for sensualists. String swells rub against the sporadic textures of tinkling piano lines and envelop the duo's French-language harmonies in a wash of lush neo-soul. And whether we're talking about the flute-driven "Makeda" or the delicate "Princesse Nubienne," there's a fluidity that translates to an other-side-of-the-pillow cool.
