Novalima : Planetario

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.

Throughout 2014 Novalima has been recording what will be their new album, Planetario released in June 16 on Wonderwheel Recordings. The name of the album reflects its worldwide feel as it has been recorded in various locations around the globe including collaborations by top local and international musicians. A few of these recording sessions were done in Colombia which has given some of the new tracks an Afro-Colombian vibe and takes their exploration of deep Afro rhythms into the future. Collaborations include Sidestepper vocalist Eka Muñoz, as well as members from La-33, Pernett and La Mamba Negra, plus other worldwide artists such as Marc de Clive Lowe (UK/NZ), Panko from Ojos de Brujo, Kumar (Cuban rapper based in BCN). Remixes from the album are already underway with Bomba Stereo, Quantic and Nickodemus already lined up.
