Rhapsody in Black - Composer Nkeiru Okoye has a sound all her own
Composer Nkeiru Okoye doesn’t fit neatly into any kind of classical category. Her compositions showcase her genius by incorporating different types of musical styles that help create a sound that’s uniquely hers. She describers her music as “accessible” classical music mixed with African American/West African flavor, but she doesn’t see her race as the defining thing about her, or her music.
