Nigerian-born, German-based soul artist Nneka is set to release her US debut Concrete Jungle. Nneka derives her sound from the likes of Bob Marley, Nina Simone, and Erykah Badu. In Concrete Jungle, Nneka’s voice is the resounding instrument of hope driving the record, shifting from palpable desire to invigorated fury.
