Pianist Rebeca Omordia,, has been featured on AfriClassical numerous times in recent years.  She discusses her heritage on her website:

"I was born in Romania to a Nigerian father and a Romanian mother. Growing up in a mixed background, I had the greatest advantage of an upbringing influenced by two different cultures and I developed a profound understanding of both worlds. Nevertheless, I still reached a point in my life where I started to search for my own identity and I wanted to discover which side I related to most. The answer was not too hard to find. In Nigeria, they say you claim your father's country. I claim BOTH. Despite the differences of language and culture, both countries have one thing in common - Music."
