Join Host David Ornette Cherry and Ralph Miles Jones III as we talk about Kwanzaa and world music. Ralph Miles Jones III  Born in Detroit, he spent 33 years in Los Angeles. A musician, composer, and educator, he earned a bachelor's degree in ethnomusicology at UCLA and an MA in African American studies, with an emphasis in ethnomusicology. Kwanzaa is a week long celebration held in the United States honoring universal African-American heritage and culture, observed from December 26 to January 1 each year. It features activities such as lighting a candle holder with seven candles[1] and culminates in a feast and gift giving. It was created by Maulana Karenga and was first celebrated in 1966–1967. David Ornette Cherry is a world renown Composer/Musician whose Music captures the souls of our ancestors and infuses contemporary culture. David will engage listeners by exploring composition. Vocalists, Instrumentalists, and Musicians at heart can follow along and interact with David as he dishes out theory!
