Namvula is a singer and songwriter whose artistic journey is an exploration of cultural intersections and heartfelt storytelling. Her music reflects the nuances and complexities of her mixed Zambian and Scottish heritage, and a restlessness born of her diasporic upbringing.

She takes inspiration from the deep grooves of Africa, the lyrical sensibility of folk-pop, and the improvisational freedom of jazz. She sings about the beauty and ugliness of life, its creativity, its tenderness and cruelty. The inspiring stories and influences of strong women who populate her lineage have informed her interest in and sensitivity to politics including feminism, the climate emergency, and migration.
