Listen To This: Strange Fruit!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaLaura Mvula

Laura Mvula is like a modern-day Nina Simone! And that is so refreshingly awesome!

Nobody else is quite in this lane right now!

Her songs combine pop with soul and fierce syncopation!

Check out her latest single, That's Alright, above!

If you dig Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill or Erykah Badu, we think you will really like it!

    I have to point this out…the song, "Strange Fruit", (most notably sung by Billie Holiday) which may or may not be the inspiration for the title of the article, is about the lynching of slaves in the American South…may want to rethink the headline/title, because it could be taken very offensively.

    i was about to say the same thing. I recognized the title right away from the Billie Holliday albums I have. Strange Fruit is about seeing bodies hanging from trees all along the south and it was a quite powerful tune….

    NOT EVE CLOSE TO NINA SIMONE. Nina Simone had soul. Every time I hear her recording ot Strange Fruit, it gives me chills.

    @Ratzassss I was just thinking the same thing. While Laura is a great singer, her sound, and voice are nothing like Ms. Simone. NOBODY can replicate the soul, pain, and depth of Ms. Simone.
