Zakia

Zakia has so steeped herself in the stuff that Spiritual Jazz is practically her middle name. On her NTS radio show Questing she does the great work of spreading the knowledge of the roots of black music, from gospel and spirituals to jazz to soul. This quest is not based solely on NTS, Zakia recently created a documentary on the lady herself Ella Fitzgerald which aired on BBC6 UK. Watch out for this woman. Yes!
