THINK

Nneka is one of the most important rising artists to hear and watch, now and into the future. In having conversations with her once when she was in LA, came to realize how deeply thoughtful Nneka is in terms of truth, love, justice for all mankind from heavy issues like political corruption, crony capitalism that exposes itself as corporatist ruination of resource centers. Nneka being from Lagos, Nigeria in the oil rich Niger Delta region of Africa, is all to familiar with life's harsh realities for those in her homeland. The gulf of Mexico oil spill the U.S. faced in 2010 is really, truly nothing.... compared to decades of such never ending raping and pillaging of the Lagos region by global energy cartels.

Nneka never names names of the crooks, the corrupt politicians that she often alludes to in her music. But if one digs deep into her music and play her songs dozens of times, like true fans do, one peels off the layers that exposes Nneka's depth.

She is only one of a small handful of artists with a most powerful global sound who sings about many things important. That's why she is one to watch, for those who seek to think for revolutionary change for the betterment of not only one's own country, but the world. GC

Theresa Andersson - Inspired loop genius and much more...

This first song is the one that put Theresa Andersson on the MusicTelevision.Com map several years ago. Using creative techniques to loop her voice into layers of harmonies along with drum and guitar sounds, Ms. Andersson and her one woman band has an inspired & contagious sound that transcends this grainy fixed angle webcam style video & low-fi audio recording. This is all live, with no overdubs or post production... right in her own New Orleans kitchen.

Theresa Andersson - Birds Fly Away


Theresa's latest 2012 album departs from the above style of loops. In the video below, a woman receives a mysterious invitation to an enchanted music box. It was filmed in the upper 9th ward/Bywater Neighborhood and at Dithyrambalina, New Orleans LA.

Theresa Andersson - Street Parade


And below are more inspired performances of Theresa and her one woman band, live at Le Petit Theatre in the French Quarter, New Orleans. A very entertaining DVD of the entire night's performance is available at this link inside her website.

Theresa Andersson - Blue Skies


Theresa Andersson - Oh Mary
