BiographySometimes it takes distance to truly understand and appreciate one's culture. The four Peruvian expats of Novalima didn't start reinventing their Afro-Peruvian heritage until they were living in far-flung places such as Barcelona and Hong Kong. In 2003 the group released its self-titled debut, which mixed Afro-Peruvian and Latin percussion with dub and downtempo. Their 2006 follow-up went further, reinterpreting traditional Afro-Peruvian songs through the same contemporary electronic lens.
