she’s nneka and she’s her own, but i can’t help but think manu chao + africa + erykah + lauryn + bob + fela + 2010 + hiphop when i listen to her music.  power.   she’s pure heart.

get the mixtape she did w/ j.period for free.  listen to her on kpfa.  watch her on hardknock.tv (love this interview).  i do find NYT’s  jon pareles‘ point about her not using afrobeat in the album as interesting.  glad she’s doing it her way!
