NOMO are touring in support of their new album, New Tones, which hits stores May 9 on Ubiquity Records. New dates have just been added in Washington DC, Atlanta, Seattle, Chicago (a second date in June following NOMO's solo show on 5/12), Houston, Tucson, Salt Lake City, Denver & Omaha. Dates have already been confirmed in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Boston, Portland, Philadelphia & more.

NOMO were signed to Ubiquity through interest in their little-known self-titled 2004 debut, and on the back of an onslaught of persuasive emails from their fans that the band puts on a must-see live show. Raw propulsive rhythms and infectious melodies carry a horn section and multilayered percussion that is part Tom Ze, M.I.A., Philip Cohran, P-Funk, Antibalas, Tortoise and Harry Partch. Enigmatic Detroit producer Warn Defever (His Name Is Alive) was charged with capturing the band's live energy, and he shaped the sounds for maximum impact. Magnet called NOMO's debut, “party music of the first order, locking into a groove so deep you can practically feel the sweat." And Pitchfork wrote, “It's only one album, but this record places NOMO rather firmly near the head of an emerging pack of Afrobeat revival bands."

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
