Anaïs Maviel is a vocalist, percussionist, composer, educator, curator & healer based in New York. Her recent work focuses on the function of music as understood in traditional societies: essential to settling common grounds and addressing relation. Inspired by Martinique thinker Édouard Glissant’s reflections on Creolization, Maviel entwins her work with the inextricable currents that move spaces and people between times and lands. Her solo performances are an effortless blend of genres and cultures, centering her stunning, exploratory vocal paths as they’re accompanied by tender surdo (Brazilian drum) and n’goni (West African harp). A creative force capable of assuaging pain and distance through deep, delicate sounding.
