Houston Museum of African American Culture and Nigerian-American Multicultural Center presented  “Parallels” – Devotional Music from the African Diaspora. Hosted by MECA, and performances from Journeymen For Christ and RCCG Restoration Chapel Choir. The contrast and similarities of Gospel music and an almost full African Choir should be a real visual and audio feast for any ethno-musicologist.
