Nekita Waller is New State Troubadour


Nekita Waller is New State TroubadourGovernor Dannel P. Malloy and the Connecticut Office of the Arts are pleased to announce the appointment of Nekita Waller of Middletown as Connecticut’s 17th State Troubadour. Waller will serve a three-year term beginning August 1, 2018. She succeeds Kate Callahan who served from 2016 to 2018.
As Connecticut’s first African American State Troubadour, Nekita wants to use this title to visit schools and meet children who don’t have the same level of opportunities afforded to them as others. “Music is my purest form of communication. It doesn’t care how much money you have, where you were born, the color of your skin, or how old you are,” notes Nekita. “There is no greater feeling or purpose than to help another person. Whether it is to make someone smile, dance, brighten their day or help them reach a better level of themselves, this is life’s greatest award.”
