Nigerian-German musician Nneka is quite a find; her unique blend of reggae, soul, hip-hop and just about anything else that captures her fancy makes her one of her country’s most exciting musical exports.

Born and raised in Warri, Nigeria to a German mother and Nigerian father, Nneka became interested in music a few years after arriving in Germany at the age of 18, where she completed her studies. She started collaborating with DJ Farhot in 2003 and since then has released two albums and a number of EPs and has embarked on the “Distant Relatives” tour with Nas and Damian Marley.

Here’s the video for “Heartbeat” off of Nneka’s album Concrete Jungle:
