Celebrate Brooklyn With Les Nubians

This is one the the many reasons I LOVE BROOKLYN...”Celebrate Brooklyn”.
All summer long they have free concerts for any and everyone.
This Saturday I went to see Les Nubians preform at Prospect Park. And let me tell you it was well worth being outside in what felt like 100 plus degrees that evening.

Les Nubians is an R&B Grammy-nominated duo composed of sisters Hélène and Célia Faussart from Paris, France. In 1985 the sisters moved with their parents to Chad. Seven years later, they returned to Bordeaux, France, and began singing a cappella, producing poetry slams in Bordeaux and Paris, and singing background vocals for various artists worldwide. The duo’s debut album Princesses Nubiennes was released by Virgin Records, France, in 1998.

They have become one of the most successful French-language musical groups in the U.S., best known for their Billboard R&B Single “Makeda” from their Grammy nominated album Princesses Nubiennes. Les Nubians were the 1999 Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards winners for Best New Artist, Group or Duo and received two NAACP Image Awards nominations in 2000.
