Awarded the prestigious Julliard Career Advancement Grant by Wynton Marsalis and a featured performer on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert, Washington DC-born Cameroonian-American vocalist Ekep Nkwelle is among the most acclaimed young artists in jazz.

Forging her path through the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, the Juilliard School, and Howard University, where she performed with the renowned Afro Blue jazz vocal ensemble, Nkwelle has already built an impressive list of collaborators including Russell Malone, Cyrus Chestnut, and Emmet Cohen, and recently worked with the legendary Dee Dee Bridgewater as part of her exclusive, all-women artistic residency, The Woodshed Network.
