About Joan Henry:

Vocalist, actress, dancer, composer, poet-lyricist, percussionist and choreographer, it’s hard to think of a style she doesn’t cover. She sings everything. Really. And folks sing back to her...

She credits Buffy Sainte-Marie, Ella Fitzgerald, Flora Purim & Milton Nascimento as key inspirations that influenced and guided her musical life, explaining, “Buffy’s career in particular showed me that is was possible to do what I do - to blend our native culture and ideas into contemporary music and be successful with it. She was someone I could identify with, and she encouraged me later in life. All four of these singers, though, did that in their own way - they all had something to say, they all understood their voices as instruments of a Master Orchestrator in relationship to the rest of their band, and all four dissolved barriers with the simple power of their voices.”

About Noyeh-Ongeh, Mother Earth:

Joan Henry and her musical allies & family - Ken Lovelett, Rob Norris, Chuk Fowler, Cassondra Madera & Jon Delson - have been weaving melodic tapestries in a wide range of styles around and beyond New York’s Hudson Valley in one form or another for many years. A commitment to the spirit of the Earth, awareness of the power of personal roots and the relatedness of all beings everywhere, carried on the back of superb musicianship, keeps the music of their collaborations alive and kicking, moving and inspiring audiences wherever they go… This flexible & gifted pool of individually established artists, all keenly aware of the rapid changes to life on our Mother Earth, are all dedicated to bringing New World rhythms and awareness to the next place in a meaningful and interconnective way – working together.

- And with Joani, an audience never knows how they’re going to be involved…

Be ready. It may move you to tears -- or to dance…

Wado - thanks for listening.
