mini review of Nneka's Concrete Jungle

Concrete Jungle
by Nneka- I picked this up a few months ago and want to make you aware of the album. Although not attaining the same level of pop perfection, Nigerian singer, Nneka could be the long lost sister of Lauren Hill. Steeped in her traditional African musical tradition, but infusing it with American soul and hip-hop, Nneka is hopefully the sound of tomorrow in a genre destroyed by Auto-tune and canned beats (Erykah Badu is her closest comparison). Profoundly spiritual, this is a great addition to the growing African hip-hop catalog, beside K’naan.

Listen here.
