Noukilla ”We are here” (the meaning in Mauritian Creole) is a band from the Island of Mauritius, formed in 2005. Whilst playing cover songs with different bands in the city and working as session musicians at the same time, they regularly came together to play tunes from their faraway home.
Their unconditional love for music led to the birth of their original songs in 2010, and their own style of Sega/Seggae-Fusion and also Reggae to the fans, who find words like “sunny, exotic, colorful, warm, happy, energetic, good-mood” to describe the band.
Noukilla have a very strong stage presence and the gift to put smiles on people’s faces. The band was formed with five Mauritians but along they way, they have added musicians from China and America; plus two beautiful dancers from the Island that bring even more spice to the stage.
Amongst other performances, the “Mauritian music ambassadors” got invited to many of the big festivals in China and Hong Kong. The mixture of their different ethnicities and backgrounds (African/Indian/British/French) reflects in their music with lyrics in Creole, French and English.
The band released their first album in September 2012 and are still going strong on China’s scene today.
