M³’s Closing Night Gala, hosted by music writer Kyla Marshell, presenting the inaugural M³ Lifetime Achievement Award to Shanta Nurullah.

At our first Gala, hosted by music writer Kyla Marshell, we will honor Shanta Nurullah with the M³ Lifetime Achievement Award. This award fills a gap that exists in honoring elder women in the jazz and creative music scene, whose musical contributions have been invisibilized due to racism and misogyny.
