    Neneh Cherry

    Top Ten Books

    If you came of age in the’90s you could hardly fail to be aware of Neneh Cherry, whose best selling album, Raw Like Sushi gave the world “Buffalo Stance” and “Manchild”, a pair of still bitingly crisp singles that blended rap, R&B, and pop, reflecting her eclectic musical heritage her father was Ahmadu Jah, a percussionist from Sierra Leone; her stepfather was the American jazz trumpeter, Don Cherry. Her mother’s career as a much-admired artist likely had an equally significant influence. Cherry followed her debut with three more albums, including 1996’s Man, which included the singles “Woman” and “7 Seconds,” a collaboration with Youssou N’Dour, a hit single sung in three languages, including Wolof, spoken principally in Sierra Leone. Following a long break, Cherry returned in 2014 with Blank Project, a trip hop-inflected slice of futuristic soul as inventive as anything she’s ever recorded.

    Below are Neneh Cherry's favorite books, available to purchase individually or as a set. See the full list...
