Now Playing: Abir + Kenneth Whalum

In the early and interactive days of Twitter there was a weekly Music Monday feature. I’d log on and see all types of tweets sharing great music. It was such an easy way for me to discover new artists. I haven’t seen a Music Monday tweet scroll across my timeline in ages and I totally miss that. Now I feel “old” when I find out about dope artists late. I recently stumbled across two critically acclaimed artists, ABIR and Kenneth Whalum that are bringing their talents here to DC.
