Her solo album, Legacy: Violin Music of African Composers, was heralded as one of the top 10 albums of 2011 by all Music Guides, garnering acclaim from audiences and critics alike. Nothing or no one can compare to the sounds of this musical genius! Come and experience what others have heard and boast about, the music of Tami Lee Hughes, a cultural odyssey. Uncommonly great!
