BBC Sound Of 2016: Nao

Nao has come third in BBC Music's Sound Of 2016 list, which is compiled by over a hundred music industry experts.

Past poll winners have included Adele, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding and Years & Years.

Nao did a jazz degree at Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, before working full time on her music, which is described as a blend of classic soul, R&B and electronica.

The rarely photographed Nao allowed a BBC's camera crew to join her at her studio in East London.

Video production by John Galliver and Alex Stanger.
