Desert Island Discs: Salim Washington, Part Two

Dr, Salim Washington joins us from Durban, South Africa for the first of a two-part edition of Desert Island Discs. His comments are equal to there magic of the music.

Washington is less a person of many hats than a person whose singular work takes on many forms. Washington’s work cuts across many fields—jazz performance, scholarship, education, activism—yet are animated by a pursuit of home and community. In 2012, Washington embarked on the latest leg of his multifaceted journey, relocating permanently to Durban, South Africa to teach at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and become a leader in the burgeoning jazz scene there.
