Singer and harpist Destiny Muhammad is masterful, exploratory musician known for work with Azar Lawrence, Marcus Shelby, Omar Sosa, and John Santos. Calling the entirety of her musical approach “Celtic to Coltrane,” Muhammad returns following her rapturous Hotplate performance honoring Alice Coltrane’s landmark 1971 album Journey in Satchidananda and her participation in last season’s SFJAZZ Poetry Festival. Leader of the Destiny Muhammad Trio & The Destiny Muhammad Project, Muhammad is the Principle Harpist for the Eddie Gale Inner Peace Orchestra and the Oakland Public Conservatory Orchestra. She is Governor Emeritus and Educational Chair Emeritus of the Recording Academy, Jazz Heritage Center of San Francisco Jazz Ambassador, and an ASCAP Songwriter Awardee.

"When one contemplates the great musicians of Jazz a list of harpists do not immediately come to mind, but that is destined to change with Sound Sculptress, Destiny Muhammad. " — San Francisco Examiner
