The Top 10 Acts to Watch from SXSW 2010

3. Nneka
Buy: Concrete Jungle

Another artist who caught our attention at the tail end of 2009, Nigerian-born, Germany-based rising soul star Nneka crosses continents musically as easily as she does physically. Mixing the emotional transparency of Lauryn Hill with her African influences, Nneka makes music that presents her as both a fresh voice and a positive political force. Catch a show and you’ll feel like you know her personally by the time she leaves the stage.
