Focused, Multi-talented, mellow voiced and hardworking are just some of the adjectives that define this budding artist who is causing ripples in the local music scene. She has perfected the art of pelting positive danceable lyrics that have left music pundits in awe. Welcome to the world of Nanaa, a neo-soul artist.
She has been practicing with her band that constitutes of the veteran guitarist cum producer, Etienne Mangala of Yada studio and Perminus who doubles as a pianist and voice coach. Her debut album kikaragosi will be launched on the 19th August 2011 at Alliance Fraincais. “Its hard work performing with a live band thus the early preparation”, she continues “but I have a team of dedicated back-up singers who will make the launch one of a kind”.
The beautiful Nanah is an alumni of Kinyui High School and Jomo Kenyatta University. She draws her inspiration from Miriam Makeba, Juliana Kanyamozi, Lady Jaydee, Sauti Soul and the late Brenda Fassie.
Nanaa works closely with Junguu Quu, a music writer and produces at YADA records.
