Short presentation + Artist description
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. Their unconditional love for music led to the birth of Noukilla (meaning ‘We are here!’) 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. In 2013 the Chinese keyboard player Jason Yan joined the band. Among other performances the “Mauritian music ambassadors” got invited to festivals like the JZ Festival in Shanghai, World Music Festivals, MIDI Festival, Snow Mountain Festival in Yunnan, Clockenflap Festival in Hong Kong, and the band also performed during WorldExpo 2010 in Shanghai, at F1 and the ATP Tennis Masters. 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. Noukilla - a little bit of sunshine on stage
