      Every year since her musical career took off in 2005, this Afro-German warrior princess has built on her successes, stretched her muscles, and widened her range. Nneka's music has still got a big splash of Bob Marley in the recipe, a measure of Nina Simone and a lick of Erykah Badu.

      Her latest release is "Soul Is Heavy." The fifteen songs were culled from a backlog of roughly fifty songs, many of which Nneka composed while back in Nigeria (even as the power went on and off in her Lagos apartment). They integrate myriad musical styles: reggae, hip-hop, modern R&B and vintage soul, Afrobeat, and even elements of flamenco and Sahara desert blues. They range from the driving opener, "Lucifer (No Doubt)," to the sweet and peaceful "Shining Star," and from the furious "Camouflage" to desolate, introspective cuts such as "Valley." All are unmistakably Nneka.
