Song of the Day: Nabiha - "Deep Sleep"

Today we have for you "Deep Sleep" from Danish-African pop singer-songwriter Nabiha. I'm totally digging this song and wondering why I'm just now hearing about this woman?! I apparently need to listen to more pop music. Her debut album Cracks was "re-edited" and released as More Cracks and will be available stateside soon. Scroll down to the bottom of the post and grab "Deep Sleep" in our MP3 Grab.

Nabiha is currently working on a new record to be released sometime in 2012. She will making her US performance debut later this month. And guess what New York? She'll be on the LES at Rockwood Music Hall on February 21 at 8:30PM.

Nabiha Bensouda, the award-winning, chart-topping Danish-African pop soul-singer, is currently dominating the pop music scene in Scandinavia and is poised and ready to take on the US.

Nabiha, whose family has both Danish and North-West African roots, grew up in Copenhagen, Denmark listening to a wide variety of music ranging from African lullabies to disco, soul, reggae, rock, R&B, and electronica, all of which are present in Nabiha’s style today. “Deep Sleep” her first single includes one of her mother’s favorite African lullabies. “I grew up with a welcoming, loving, strong mother and grandmother who taught me so much about life. I was constantly inspired by the love of people around me. I feel lucky.”

Nabiha is currently writing and recording her next album, due out in 2012, and on February 3, she will perform at an already sold out show in Denmark. In late February Nabiha will be making her US performance debut, first at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC on 2/21/2012 at 8:30pm, and then at Hotel Café in LA on 2/25/2012 at 7pm.
