Bantu Records is an independent record label that showcases the talent of avant-garde world music artists. Founded by Daniel Nunga in 2014, Bantu’s mission is to promote imaginative sounds from around the globe in order to celebrate the vibrancy of Afro-pop/contemporary African music and introduce it to both fresh and long-time fans of the genre.
Nunga’s vision for the label emerged from his deep love of the rhythms, melodies and harmonies of both African and Western music that surrounded him as he grew up immersed in the Arts in the small multi-cultural town of Limbe in Cameroon. He launched the record label in order to create a space where artists experimenting with the many flavors of world music can let their creativity flow.
Although headquartered in Atlanta, GA,, Bantu Records has a broad, built-in network of professional partners in the U.S., Europe and Australia with a proven track record of making international artists shine, including renowned producers Jean Lamoot (Ali Farka Toure, Salif Keita, Vanessa Paradis) and Blick Bassy. Bantu’s cross-continental presence gives its musicians the power to reach a large audience, while its commitment to honoring each artist’s individual perspective, style and career goals helps artists create their best work.
Bantu Records currently provides music production, promotion and artist development services. For more information, please Contact Us.
