Aṣa - Jailer

Aṣa (pronounced Asha, meaning "hawk" in the Yoruba language) is a Nigerian French singer/songwriter, known as Bukola Elemide to her parents, with two albums behind her so far. "Jailer" is the opening track on her first, eponymous album (2008), and with its beautiful, lilting melody comes out as the perfect blend of sweet soul music, old school reggae and West African pop music. The entire album Aṣa is very good, and I'm pretty sure the same can be said for the follow-up Beautiful Imperfection although I haven't heard it yet. But I will, and soon.

Watch and listen
