Music for The Spirit w/ Onome Djere (Online)

May 7, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Singing is a powerful conduit for connection, well-being and groundedness in these times of great change and uncertainty. Onome Djere will be incorporating improvisation and audience interaction into the Music for Spirit experience, to delight the ear, expand the consciousness, and soothe the soul.

Onome (awe nə MAY) is a vocalist of Urhobo heritage who incorporates improvisation into her practice as a tool to expand consciousness, creativity, and personal development. Through her audience-interactive performances, workshops and sound installations, Onome embodies joy, enchantment, and infinite possibility. She is an artist-in-residence at Carnegie Hall as a core member of the vocal improvisation lab and ensemble, Moving Star. She has performed sound poetry at hundreds of venues nationally, recorded soundscapes for podcasts, and created vocal film scores. She recently received her MFA in Performance Studies at Pratt Institute. She is the artistic director for Lush Tongue, a project that encompasses improvisation based on a repertoire of songs by women composers, sound healing, singing immersions, workshops, vocal coaching, retreats, and concerts. She got her start in spoken word poetry and opera via Nuyorican Poets Cafe and New York University, and now facilitates community vocal immersives at concert halls, conferences, galleries, museums, schools, cultural centers, shelters, prisons, parks, churches, wherever voices gather. Visit her online at onome.org.
