Les Nubians, One Step Forward

By Andrew Ross

With One Step Forward, Parisian hip-hop/R&B duo Les Nubians have crafted an album that even the hardened anglophone can enjoy. Granted, some of the songs are in French and the girls’ English is somewhat accented, but it’s definitely nothing you can’t easily overlook. This album represents a diverse collection of musical styles, ranging from reggae to electronica, from underground hip-hop to Afro-jazz. The end result is a thoroughly pleasant and laid-back listening experience, sweet and satisfying from beginning to end.
