Singer/songwriter Nahscha classifies herself as a mix between pop-soul and R&B. Nahscha believes that music is a universal language, and the best way to communicate to people. Spending a lot of her time singing on the streets and subways of New York City as a busker, she has found that singing in public settings creates organic moments and makes people happy.
