"My Home"
Playing on Tuesday at Gramercy Theatre
(127 E. 23rd St., Gramercy)
Get: Tickets ($15) | Directions 

Nigerian-born rapper-singer-activist Nneka sings heart-heavy, politically-charged soul and R&B that is inspired by Fela Kuti and Bob Marley, among others.

On her latest album, Soul Is Heavy, which is her second stateside release and fourth overall, Nneka plays around with an assortment of styles and genres, including flamenco and Saharan desert blues. The lead single “My Home,” for example, is a brassy, ragga-inflected tune with a Motown vibe to it.

Download “My Home” above, or watch the music video for the song below. Nneka performs at the Gramercy Theatre on Tuesday night.
