By way of Greedmont Park, I heard Nneke for the first time. Must say she is more refreshing that a cup of coffee or the flat stack of ho-hum singers served up on the morning radio. Nneka Egbuna is a Nigerian-German hip hop/soul singer and songwriter. She sings in English and her traditional language of Igbo. Get at her on her Concrete Jungle tour; details here.
Upcoming Tour Dates:
- Tue, 09/02/2010 Atlanta, GA Vinyl – Atlanta, GA
- Thu, 11/02/2010 Nashville, TN 3rd & Lindsley Bar & Grill – Nashville, TN
- Sat, 13/02/2010 St. Louis, MO The Gramaphone – St. Louis, MO
- Sun, 14/02/2010 Chicago, IL Double Door – Chicago, IL
Gives me hope for hip hop. The future is in our youth.
And you thought that you had it rough!
