This week marked my return to school’s benches and, as I much as I enjoyed it, it left me with much to do and organize: grades, writing, keeping healthy… It also means that I will resume visiting the world through culinary experiences, well, after this week. 🙂
One of my activities this weekend will consist in updating the blog. There is going to be a section featuring the multicultural blogs I know about, as well as literary agencies specialized or interested in multicultural stories. As I mentioned in the first post, this blog is still a work-in-progress. I hope that you will enjoy its improvement over time.
Aah, Nneka! Nneka is an anthropologist (or will be soon if she hasn’t already graduated), singer and songwriter of Nigerian (in West Africa) and German descent. Her native language is called Igbo; she also speaks fluently English and German. She was born in December 24, 1981. She grew up in Nigeria and moved to Germany at eighteen to attend college. She identifies her musical style as hip-hop/soul.
I enjoy her music because it is so upbeat and straightforward. You can also tell she is somewhat an activist through her lyrics, on a quest to make this world a better place by raising awareness about various social issues.
Here’s a sample of her music. The following song, titled Heartbeat, is from the 2008 album No Longer At Ease.
Her next album, Concrete Jungle, will be released in the U.S. in February 2, 2010!
And that’s a wrap! I wish you all a wonderful weekend. 🙂
