Not only is Mwalim a nominee this year, but he has also been tapped to be a presenter for the highly prestigious ceremony and award. Armed with copies of the CD (nominees get to sell copies in the lobby) and his keyboard (for the post award jam session), this will be the first time that a Mashpee Wampanoag recording artist will be involved in the awards.
"The Liberation Sessions" which earned Best Male and Female (Amaris) Jazz Vocalists awards from the New England Urban Music Awards last April, and has yielded two underground download hits; "Ain't Done Yet - Feat. Amaris" and "DEM BIG GIRLS" has steadily been attracting the attention of music industry executives as well as film and television producers seeking music for their upcoming projects.
"No matter how you slice it," says Mwalim with a grin, "Friday night will be a night to remember."
