Nina Simone earned her title of the High Priestess of Soul with songs spanning jazz, folk, R&B and gospel. A civil rights activist, she said “An artist’s duty is to reflect the times.” And today, she is one of the most sampled artists in hip-hop. The Project Artists’ Ensemble includes Valerie Stephens (vocals), Art Collins (spoken word), Yuki Monolog Kanesaka (keyboards, turntable beats), Zayra Pola Ocasio (drums), and Daniel Day (bass).
