Bio

Botofasina, a vocalist who also plays the harp and piano, began her career in the mid-1970s as the leader of a jazz band in New York City.

Her affinity for world music evolved as she worked with musicians in Europe, India, Spain, North Africa, the Philippines, Cuba and the Caribbean.

Her album, "The Spirituals," is a collection of African American spirituals. Her first effort in the genre, the recording is the result of nearly four years of studying music created more than 400 years ago by Africans who were brought to America against their will, Botofasina said.

"These songs transcend cultures. They are sincere and uplifting, and carry an energy that opens the hearts of the listeners," she said.

The music is also the basis for most forms of modern American music ranging from ragtime to rap, including gospel, blues and folk.

Botofasina is also completing an album of jazz standards called'Songs of the Urbane Ancestors'.

"Botofasina's renditions of such classics as 'Come Here, Lord,' 'Motherless Child' and 'Trouble of the World' give claim to the painful beauty in these songs," Smith said.

"Radha has very long roots in jazz, as well as classical and spiritual music. She's extremely diverse.
