Black Life: Destiny Muhammad Trio
Programmed by Chika Okoye and Ryanaustin Dennis
Come celebrate International Jazz Month with the Destiny Muhammad Trio. Known as the “Harpist from the Hood,” Muhammad follows in the footsteps of jazz harp master Dorothy Ashby, and has been described by SFJAZZ Center as a “masterful, exploratory musician.” Whether interpreting jazz standards or her original tunes, Muhammad turns every piece into a soulful adventure. She performs here with an ensemble designed to showcase her soaring vocals and transporting string work.
