Africa Mix Playlist of March 24, 2011

On the show today we conclude our special feature dedicated to women in commemoration of the International Women Month. As you know, for the last 2 weeks we have dedicated the first 2hours of the program to women artists from around the globe. We began the show today with a guest in the studio. She is Destiny Muhammad, a local artist who writes classical, crossover eclectic jazz for vocals and harp. She is my guest on this edition of Africa Mix.
