WWOZ congratulates one of its star show hosts, Soul Sister, on winning a Big Easy Award for Best DJ/Electronica on Monday, April 19. She beat out some stiff competition from Gravity A and DJ Captain Charles (both excellent acts).
Whether she's on the air at WWOZ on Saturday Nights for her Soul Power show (15 years running!), at Mimi's in the Marigny spinning her Hustle show, or serving up the raw funk at major festivals in New Orleans, Soul Sister is at the top of her game. Aside from being one of the first American radio hosts to highlight the rare groove format, she is one of the few female DJs to spin and mix 100% funk—on 100% vinyl—and related original styles in her live performances.
