Noukilla - a little bit of sunshine on stage

Biography

Noukilla are five friends from the Island of Mauritius, who came to Shanghai/China in 2005.
While playing cover songs with different bands in the city and working as session musicians at the same time, they regularly came together to play tunes from their far away home.
Under the name of Gymga – Gilbert, Yan, Macleen, Giovani and Alain – they recorded their first CD with Reggae cover songs.

Their unconditional love for music led to the birth of Noukilla (meaning ‘Here we are!’) in 2010, bringing original songs and their own style of Sega/Seggae-Fusion to the fans, who find words like “sunny, exotic, colorful, warm, happy, energetic, good mood” to describe the band.
Noukilla have a very strong stage presence and the gift to put smiles in people’s faces.

Among other performances the “Mauritian music ambassadors” got invited to festivals like the JZ Festival in Shanghai, The Hangzhou Tea Festival or the Pipa Festival, and also performed during WorldExpo 2010 in Shanghai.

The mixture of their different ethnicities and backgrounds (African/ Indian/British/ French) reflects in their music with lyrics in Creole, French and English.
Right now the band is preparing their first official release.
