Knowing No Limits: Courage Empowerment Forum Welcomes Award-Winning A Capella Vocal Band Duwende

Host Lyn Twyman is pleased to feature award-winning vocal band Duwende. The dynamic power and versatility of the human voice is demonstrated by this renown six-person a capella group comprised of J. Aaron Boykin, Derrick L. Hicks, Abbey Janes, Neal Mortimer, Edward Chung, and Ari Picker. Duwende “Whips up a crowd with their exuberant funk-pop tunes… but all six musicians perform empty-handed. Duwende is a band foremost and an a cappella show second. Their bubbly funk and hip-hop-fueled tunes draw fans more for their refreshing, expansive sound than their novelty,” according to The Boston Globe.

Their album Collective won the “2008 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards for Best Pop/Rock Album and Best Original Song”. Now Duwende has embarked on a new journey that’s well on it’s way to becoming another hit, their newly released Michael Jackson Tribute album.

Tune in Tuesday, June 14th at 9 PM Eastern, 6pm Pacific to, 94.9 FM Hudson Valley, NY to hear the amazing vocals of Duwende.


We will be featuring the music of Duwende during the hour, our featured musical guests!
