​​​Ashanti Munir is from the Roxbury/ Dorchester section of Boston, Massachusetts.  The same area that produced other music talents like Donna Summer, New Edition, 9.9, New Kids On The Block, Ed O.G. & the Bulldogs and Guru!  Unlike them, Ashanti had to carve out a niche and sound of her own without the backing of a major record company.  She is 100% independent.  A former "Amateur Night at the Apollo" winner, her music is a little smooth jazz mixed with a  lot of soul.  Since the release of her first CD, she has been the opening act for artists like Johnny Kemp, Alyson Williams, Ledisi, Esperanza Spaulding, Terri Lynn Carrington, Walter Beasley, Color Me Badd, Helen Rogers and more.  Ashanti has also shared the stage with fellow independent artists like Laurone McLendon, Marc Staggers, Donald Sheffey, Sympli Whitney, IAMDANIELMOORE, Nichelle Mungo and Jeff Ramsey to name a few.  She once subbed as a background vocalist  for Michael Buble at New Hampshire's Verizon Center!
