New Music from Anhai. A refreshing new Canadian sound with songs from Canada’s nature. Anhai creates a blend of Anishanabee (First Nations) and mixed world background emerges in an original popular alternative music format. Her songs are awakening people to a powerful voice from nature.
Anhai’s live performances have included collaborations with (Ani DiFranco’s drummer) Don Kerr, upright bass legend George Koller, and inventor of virtual reality (true story) Jared Lanier. This collaboration can be heard on her latest release: Anhai: Live Performance.
A protegé of Bob Ezrin’s in her mid-teens, Anhai has matured into a unique and unrepeatable voice that evokes anything from Polly Jean Harvey to Diamanda Galas to Lisa Gerrard, but resembles none. A transformative performance not-to-be-missed.
