From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nublu Records is an independent recording company founded by Swedish/Turkish musician, composer, cultural activist and entrepreneur, Ilhan Ersahin, in 2005. It was a natural extension of the “Nublu sound” that developed at the club, Nublu, on New York’s Lower East Side, founded by Ersahin in 2002. Capturing the cross-cultural fusion of the times, and embracing the beatnik jazz tradition for which the area has been known since the 1950s, an unofficial family of bands soon congregated around the club, which was known for its freewheeling late night jams. As more and more outfits formed, setting up Nublu Records was a logical progression.
