Awa Manneh

Awa Manneh debuted on the swedish music scene in late 2002 with the album”Sounds like me”(Sony/Columbia/KRED)and was quickly dubbed the ”R’n’B songstress” of Sweden. Awa not only sung and wrote the songs but was behind the productions of the majority of the album aswell earning her the first swedish Grammy award nomination for 'Best producer' ever given to a female.
The songs ”Hip Hop Ballad” and ”Behind Schedule” are for many of her nordic peers synonymous with that particular year . Although having made numerous collaborations in Sweden and abroad through the years the release ”Rise & Fall”is the first solo material we’ve heard from Awa in 11 years.

AWA MANNEH

Then

Awa Manneh debuted on the swedish music scene in late 2002 with the album ”Sounds like me”(Sony/Columbia/KRED) and was quickly dubbed the ”R’n’B songstress” of Sweden often compared to the likes of Mary J Blige and Alicia Keys. At a time when american girl groups like Destiny’s child” were at the hight of their career Awa’s more mellow approach to R’n’B stood out along with the fact that she was not only singing and writing the songs but was behind the productions of the majority of the album aswell. The songs ”Hip Hop Ballad” and ”Behind Schedule” are for many of her peers synonymous with that particular year . The following years were filled with touring around Sweden and other nordic countries with her own band and as a featured guest within the widely known music collective Blacknuss.

Now

Although having made numerous collaborations in Sweden and abroad through the years the release ”Rise & Fall” is the first solo material we’re hearing from Awa in 11 years. The song features Awa’s guitar along a hip-hop sounding production enhanced by the voice of swedish-american rapper ”Swingfly”, known for his collaborations with super-group ”Teddybears” among others. Produced and written by Awa herself she’s staying true to form while taking her sound to a new level.
