“Put your hand where it hurts and this sound may heal you…there is no way you can hear such music and not be transformed.”
-Greg Tate (excerpt from liner notes for Her Holy Water: A Black Girl’s Rock Opera)
Recently featured in the New York Times, vocalist/composer Imani Uzuri is an eclectic artist who creates, performs and collaborates across various genres including concerts, experimental theater, recordings, performance art and sound installations. She has performed at numerous international venues/festivals from Morocco to Moscow; from Lincoln Center to The United Nations including a recent special solo performance at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Her diverse collaborators include Herbie Hancock, Wangechi Mutu, Vijay Iyer, Sanford Biggers, Talib Kweli and John Legend. Television appearances include David Letterman and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. Uzuri’s nomadic world travels, and her interest in sacred music and experimentation is reflected in her various projects including her critically aclaimed debut album Her Holy Water: A Black Girl’s Rock Opera. New York Magazine has called her work “stunning”. Her forthcoming new album The Gypsy Diaries which features vocals, violin, cello, acoustic guitar, sitar and daf, is a lyrical and spiritual soundscape. www.imaniuzuri.com
