Nyoka Ny-D is an experimental artist and producer. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Nyoka began her musical journey at a young age while living in Trinidad and Tobago. Nyoka is influenced by soca and reggae music of the islands. She is also greatly influenced by the Hip-Hop and the Neo-Soul movement of the 1980s and 1990s.
Nyoka's music is an experimental fusion of hip-hop, R&B, reggae, funk, pop and neo-soul.
Nyoka's music relays passion, peace and love, but is often balanced with pain, sorrow, and the realities of life, such as poverty and heartbreak. “Music should represent life and life is full of contradictions; nothing is black and white, my musical style and topics range in color.”
