Inspired by both Bob Marley and Fela Kuti, French-born Nigerian singer Asa knows how to marry bleak social realities with positive images and upbeat music. Her singing traverses the boundaries between soul and jazz, and her prodigious musical skills don’t stop at her velvety voice. Never one to stay in a single lane, Asa has learned to play the guitar, drums, and trumpet. Undoubtedly her wide range of musical skills have allowed her to genre hop with every new release. Most recently she has added 1960’s rock, pop, and soul to her repertoire.
