Nuri nomineres for:

Innovation in global bass music – Nuri has a fresh approach to mixing electronic sounds with archival recordings from different African traditions.

Begrundelse for nominering:


Nuri is a rising talent in the Danish roots and electronic music scene. He has a wholly unique sound that has quickly grabbed the attention of many. We will surely continue to hear much about him in the coming years.


A producer and percussionist from Tunisia, now living in Copenhagen, Nuri is one of the upcoming promising musicians of African futurism, mixing deep bass, organic percussion with poly rhythmic grooves, sharing bills with names like Clap Clap and Dengue Dengue Dengue.

Lately, he released his debut album on Shouka, a label focusing on traditional music and contemporary electronic from North Africa and beyond. ‘’Drup’’ is a tribute to Tunisian’s African heritage, and a bridge to other traditions, replete with percussions and vocals from all over the mother continent, but also from Asia, combined with digital work to constitute an amalgam of then and now.

On stage Nuri is a masked witch doctor, conducting a deep ritual which is a journey into the lost roots of his homeland. Heritage, Tribalism, Organic sounds, melodies, and a pack of emotions.
