She mentions her connection with God, the audience, and her band mates when she is performing. Nneka also speaks a little Igbo in her native Nigerian language.

If you were touched by 'Heavy Soul' Part 1 last week, no doubt you'll conjure the same sorts of feelings with Part 2 above. I sure did. Nneka's soulful music and personality are once again on display as we also get to see more of her intellectual perspective, specifically when it comes to how anthropology has impacted her music both conciously and sub-consciously and also through her relationship with God and with the people. BIG shouts once again to the production and video crew listed below - they killed it for another masterpiece! Watch above and cop Nneka's album, Soul Is Heavy, available now.
"'Heavy Soul' is a Superstar Film by Jamaar J . Part one focuses on international artist Nneka. She sits down (literally) in the streets of Chicago with Jeff Baraka and talks about her album Soul Is Heavy. They also discuss her creative process, her influences, growing up in the Niger Delta, and recording her latest album in her home in Lagos, Nigeria. You can also catch a glimpse of her live performance at the Double Door in Chicago. Part two coming soon!"
