Asa, is a Paris-based Nigerian singer-songwriter. Her newest album 'Beautiful Imperfection" was released earlier this year, and is as sweet mix of retro soul, reggae, 60s girl group sounds and more. Genre hopping and genre defying. 'Why Cant We Be' and 'Be My Man' are endless summer grooves, while 'Fire on the Mountain' fuses a Trenchtown bounce, with deep conscious lyrics. Stay tuned, cos' we expect big things from this young artist.
