BandWorldEDM

Novalima fusions the rootsy soul of traditional Afro-Peruvian music with hip, contemporary DJ culture to create an intoxicating blend that is perfect for the festival stage or the club dance floor.

Biography

Since its formation in 2001, Novalima has been breaking down boundaries, uniting seemingly irreconcilable genres, communities and generations to create an inspiring movement that has revolutionized the music scene in their native Peru. Founded by four friends from Lima with a shared passion for both traditional Afro-Peruvian music and modern DJ culture, Novalima searches for the common ground between past and future, between tradition and innovation. They have release four albums that have topped World Music Charts around the world. Outside of Peru, Novalima has garnered critical acclaim from mainstream and underground media alike, a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album, and a featured spot in cult filmmaker Robert Rodriguez’s hit Mexploitation movie Machete.
