Diasporic Music shines the musical spotlight on Whitney Houston and Sweet Honey In The Rock. Mumia Abu-Jamal points out: "Her voice, her pace, her phrasing, her stage presence and her beauty was a package that virtually define Star. Indeed, she was the rarest of creatures: Superstar. Ironically, the very media that savaged her for years, flipped into worship mode, when she was gone and could no longer hear them." Diasporic Music will interview the Buffalo, N.Y. born Aisha Kahlil of Sweet Honey In The Rock. The Washington Post wrote: "Aisha Kahilil's tour de force lead vocals ...garnered the largest of many standing ovations" Diasporic Music will also speak with Klive Walker, the author of Dubwise: reasoning from the reggae underground. Walker will discuss Bob Marley's contribution Black Music.
