Native Joy For Real


Native Joy For Real album cover

What happens when you mix the powerful lyrics of an internationally known poet with her raw smoky singing and top it with jazzy, saucy licks of her alto sax?

All of this over a music that defies categorization: it’s a distinct native sound blended with jazz, rock, even folk and a touch of hip hop soul for spice. You can sing to it, 
you can dance to it, cry to it, even laugh a little.
