Nneka / Emily Elbert
October 20, 2012
If not a musician, Nneka might have made an excellent investigative journalist or perhaps a philosopher. In truth, both disciplines embody her art. She uses triumphant brass and uplifting reggae rhythms illuminate her journey into the heart of darkness and an uncertain future. Nneka's songs may begin with personal experiences and homegrown sentiments, but global appeal imbues her music and its message. She transcends both geographic and aesthetic boundaries.
