About the ArtistWho is Mahogany Dust?
The definition of DNA & Gi-Twice -
This husband and wife originate from northern Louisiana, graduates of Southern University A & M College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana obtaining degrees in Microbiology. They decided New Years Day 2007 to leave their day jobs to heal the world through music. Though this road hasn’t always been easy, sacrificing the house and the car, they have stayed true to the mission to heal those of us that are going through everyday struggles and lessons of life. DNA, (Destroying Negative Attitudes), who’s Spoken Word let you know exactly how it is- straight no sugar coating- but relates and communicates to all ages and races regardless of the situation. Gi-Twice, who defines melodic soul, can do it all, mixing the old big band era with a Gi-Twice twist, you get an unbelievable pure and positive vibrations that really hit deep.
