"Mahogany Dust - Spoken Soul"

MAHOGANY DUST - SPOKEN SOUL
Mixing Poetry, Music and Spiritual Healing

Mahogany Dust is a husband and wife team that left their day jobs to follow their passion and have been going strong since.

These scientific minds (both hold a degree in Biology) could not hold down the true Artists in them bursting at the seams to spill words from their mouth to your soul.

The poetry is superb and the singing is soothing - so be sure to get your healing directly from Mahogany Dust at this Springfest 2008!

beyond training and coaching professionals on public speaking. Correlations is also involved with Humble
Beginnings, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping men overcome adversity and sponsors

DNA, (Destroying Negative Attitudes), who’s Spoken Word let you know exactly how it is- straight no sugar coating- but relates and communicates to all ages and races regardless of the situation. Gi-Twice, who defines melodic soul, can do it all, mixing the old big band era with a Gi-Twice twist, you get an unbelievable pure and positive vibrations that really hit deep.
