Nu Blues – Dreams Of Bluesman
Nublues is a perfect example of the blues surviving in the hip-hop era. This British band mixes John Lee Hooker type riffs with urban beats "à la" Wu-Tang Clan. At a time when we have to rely on film-makers like Wim Wenders or Clint Eastwood to remind us of the force and truth contained in these forms of expression, Nublues is a healthy reminder of the ties between the blues, the Mississippi delta and the urban energy of rap.
