The New England Urban Music Awards was created in 2006 to acknowledge and promote the achievements of local and regional urban artists, producers, Disc Jockeys, and promoters who have contributed to the R&B, Hip Hop, Jazz, Caribbean, Spoken Word and Gospel music scene in New England. Members of the general make preliminary nominations public and a pool of music industry professionals select qualifying nominees. The winners are selected by a vote of the general public.

Not a stranger to the NEUMA, Mwalim swept the 2010 Jazz cartegory with his album “The Liberation Sessions” winning the “Best Jazz Male” as well as “Best Jazz Female” for Amaris Moss vocal work on the same album. He won the category again in 2012 for his House Music influenced “DEEP Soul Chants & Hollers” album.

“Awakened By A Noon Day Sun” also called the ‘NDN Jazz’ album for it’s use of eastern Native American influenced melodies blended with a healthy dose of jazz-funk (or funk-jazz). The premiere single from the album, “The Trading Post” is finding it’s way into rotation on jazz, community, and Native American radio stations throughout the USA and Canada as well as internet based stations. The album can be purchased as a download on iTunes, eMusic, Amazon and Spotify.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
