Sandra Nkake sings her own brand of soul, drawing on African roots freely, coming up with a blend all her own. Nothing for Granted (Jazz Village) showcases her music in moving ways. She has a distinctive vocal sound and her songs are equally singular. It's music of protest, love, intelligence.
It draws on soul roots but takes them in a new place, like Sade before, only as original and compelling in its own way.
This is music that cannot be easily described, except to say that it's Sandra Nkake music. Hear it!
