    An unconventional female duo that came out of Bordeaux, France, in the 1990s, Les Nubians offer a jazzy, sophisticated style of R&B that combines French lyrics with the influence of Sade, Soul II Soul, hip-hop, and African pop.

    Their promising debut album, Princesses Nubiennes, was released by Virgin worldwide in France, Switzerland, and Belgium in June 1998 before coming out on Omtown/Higher Octave in the U.S. in September of that year. It became America's most successful French-language album in more than a decade, and Les Nubians also graced recordings by Talib Kweli and Black Eyed Peas, as well as a Red Hot tribute to Fela Kuti, Red, Hot
