With a hybrid sound that takes its inspiration from around the globe, dusting off old tunes and fusing them with an exquisite groove: Nu Genea Live Band (ex-Nu Guinea) loves to blend cultures. Maybe Vesuvius is responsible for the heat generated by the music of this Neapolitan duo. One thing is certain, DJ/musicians Massimo Di Lena and Lucio Aquilina, who founded the group in 2014, write songs that are bathed in sunshine. Now located in Berlin, they’ve lost none of the exoticism that makes them dancefloor sensations. After their 2016 debut album in collaboration with the late Tony Allen, these Italians launched their own label the following year, NG Records. This was followed by a second album in 2018, Nuova Napoli, and most recently the disco-funk single Marechià (2021).
