Join singer/songwriter and multi-disciplinary artist, Joni NehRita for an evening of music and exploration. The Jamaican-Canadian artist’s music invites listeners to think, feel and move with her socially charged Afro-Latin & Caribbean soul. She will give the audience a peek behind life as an independent artist who is committed to using her voice for equity and the cultivation of compassion. There will be intimate performances from her latest album, Love & Protest as well as from her upcoming choral project entitled, Songs For Community.
Having recently traveled to Brazil to complete facilitator’s training, she will also give participants a little taste of “Música do Círculo / Circle Music”, which is in essence, a form of group music making whose core elements include: body percussion, improvisation, movement, play and singing. Don’t fret- no musical experience is required. For more information, contact the Arts Department at 416-393-7157
