“Formed in Montreal, the group is a positive reflection of today’s world, where different cultures rub shoulders and feed in a harmonious climate.

EVERYWHERE IS HOME, EVERYONE IS FAMILY!
From multiple roots, Nomad’Stones is a project inspired by the vast varieties of earth scattered across everyone’s unique path. The result is a fusion of music from Africa with an exploration of styles from the West. Their sound is imbued with a humanity from deep within their souls. A place where borders no longer make sense.
Originating from multiple roots, Nomad’Stones is a project inspired by the billions of dust that each one sows on its way. The resultant mixed-race music wavers between the Africa of the origins and the West of the discoveries, with a style imbued with humanism where the idea of frontier no longer exists.
A melting and mixed music, which revolves around texts relating to travel, in search of lost lands and lives, “dust” that shapes the universe. Sometimes joyous texts that recount the nostalgia, restore the memories of childhood of the working-class districts, and the joy of life of the lambda people; Sometimes meditative, traversing the journeys of the present time, of deep love, of the “zawali” (the marginalized); their hopes and their dreams, their desire to share.
In 2015, the group won the Ali Maâchi Award (name of the Algerian poet and composer), awarded by the Ministry of Culture of Algeria. A year later, they received the Syli bronze of world music. Their first album, titled,”Et le Monde Danse” (And the World Dances), was released in April 2017.
