MUSIQUE – Les Nubians à DC

Les Nubians is an Afropean, Urban, R&B Grammy-nominated duo of sisters Hélène and Célia Faussart from Paris France. In 1985 they moved with their parents to Chad, Africa, and returned to Bordeaux seven years later where they began their musical career and producing poetry slams in Paris. Les Nubians’ critically acclaimed debut album, Princesses Nubiennes, was released by Virgin Records in France in 1998.  They have become one of the most successful French-language musical groups in the U.S., and are best known for their Billboard R&B Single « Makeda » from their debut album.  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.

CULTURE – Deux choses extrêmement difficiles à obtenir ces jours-ci…

  1. Un ticket pour entrer dans le très famous nouveau musée de DC, le Museum of African American History and culture. Les tickets sont gratuits mais impossible d’y mettre la main.
  2. Un ticket pour aller voir, à New York, le très célèbre show sur Broadway, Hamilton. Ces tickets sont hors de prix…Pas moins de $600 par ticket! Mais, je compte bien faire voir à mes enfants ce show très instructif sur l’histoire des Etats-Unis. Comment trouver un ticket, j’utilise généralement StubHub (qui appartient à Ebay).
