Best Local International / World Music Act

The all-female African drum and dance troupe GIWAYEN MATA has won this award before, but never has it been so richly deserved. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year with an eclectic celebration concert, which showcased the group's increasing embrace of Diaspora music and dance forms, and a new CD of original music (the group's first), Giwayen Mata enters its second decade as a fixture on Atlanta's black arts scene while it continues to evolve.
