Saturday Soul: Asa, "Fire on the Mountain"




If someone combined the super musical talents of Bob Marley and India.Arie, the resulting sound would be a lot like Nigerian Soul-Pop star, Asa.

Here's the burgeoning sensation performing "Fire on the Mountain" on BBC2's Later... with Jools Holland.

Enjoy this filling Saturday Soul (on Sunday!)... All the Soul, half the saturated fat.

Yes Boss! Asa is the absolute truth. And proudly Nigerian too. I'm sure the comparison could have been: "If you could mix Fela (at his best) with a modern day Aretha Franklyn with a tinge of rendering from India Arie, the result would be Asa".

I went back home to Nigeria for two months over the summer break, bought her CD and fell in love instantly.

You'd most probably love Nneka as well. Especially her song, "heartbeat."

They're getting incredible support from their fellow Nigerians which I find heart-warming.
