Pure Nneka: A 9-Minute Introduction

Footage from her album release party at SOBs, New York last month features afri-soul woman of the moment Nneka talking about her music, her influences, her life experiences and responsibility of being an artist – chopped inbetween performances from the show (including rousing crowd favourite, ‘Heartbeat’).

From the perspective of one who has been a fan of her music for a couple of years now, I have to say this video does a fantastic job at encapsulating Nneka – right down to her nuances.

The essence of Nneka, purified into 9 minutes and 15 seconds.
