Nasambu Barasa & The Mystic Nomads

Bio

Nasambu Barasa, (Kenya/USA) Afro-Soul Singer-songwriter, producer and founder of the band, The Mystic Nomads, has captivated audiences on 3 continents with her unique style, a fusion of Jazz, Reggae, Latin, and African rhythms that is deeply rooted in her spirituality as a mystic. Nasambu seamlessly vocalizes her poetry in the languages of English, Swahili, Spanish and French. Stylistically she pens soul-stirring lyrics to reflect the realities of today's mystic nomads living in a global village.

The latest album, Activate Afrika, was recorded live at Titan Studios in Southern California. The recent music video release, Monopoly, is the first single off the Activate Afrika Album.

Her previous album project was with Streets to the Hill, a duo comprised of Nasambu, vocalist, and producer, Shaolin, of Barbados. The Soul of Kingston, released in 2006, as a neo-soul fusion of reggae standards was widely acclaimed as an underground music sensation in the Jamaican community, garnering a featured article in the Jamaican Gleaner newspaper and an exclusive interview on the Cutting Edge Radio Show with Mutabaruka. Streets to the Hill released the music video, El Shaddai, a soulful rendition of JahMali’s original hit tune, and they also played festivals the likes of Reggae Rising Festival 2007 in Northern California and Northwest World Reggae Festival in Oregon, sharing the stage with artists such as K'naan, Salif Keita, Jabali Afrika, and Queen Omega.

Throughout her journey, Nasambu has witnessed how Soul Music continually transcends the divisions of language, tribe, and creed to commune directly with the hearts of audiences around the world.

In 2013, Nasambu was featured live on radio stations in Kenya, East Africa, and welcomed on Good Morning Kenya, a TV show aired nationwide. Nasambu also toured some of Europe’s biggest summer festivals, including Summer Jam and Montreux Jazz with Ghanaian Reggae artist and UN ambassador, Rocky Dawuni and the Revelation Project.
