info 

Quiet Revolutions is the follow up to Namvula's critically acclaimed debut album Shiwezwa (NMRCD 1), which captured people's imaginations with its unique blend of traditional Zambian music, fused with elements of Scottish folk, jazz and Latin. This second offering is a more mature, less genre-driven work, taking in Afrobeat, traditional, singer-songwriter styles and more. The joyous and raw freedom that comes through the music is evident. All but one (Nalile) of the 12 tracks on the album are original. Nalile (Little Sorrow) is a traditional song that accompanies a Zambian folk tale, part of which is sung in the Zambian Ila (the traditional part) with a new section, inspired by Nina Simone’s “Blackbird”, written in English by Namvula.
