Entertainment + Music + Nightlife

If you merged Miriam Makeba with Nina Simone, added a dose of Tracy Chapman and sprinkled on some Tina Turner, you might begin to explain Natu Camara. Her vibrant songwriting, charged performance style, and passion for social justice make her a unique presence in the global music scene. Born in Ivory Coast and raised in Guinea, Camara is former front-woman for West Africa’s first all-female hip-hop sensation, The Ideal Black Girls. Now out on her own, Natu’s effervescent sound blends Afro-Pop and soul - creating inspirational songs of hope and healing.
