Anohni isn’t afraid of the darkness. Three decades into her career, the art-pop musician is still embracing new sounds, carrying stories from the past and interrogating all kinds of power.
The New York Times

For the first time in eight years, ANOHNI, who NPR called “one of our generation’s greatest protest singers/songwriters” has announced an extensive North American tour.

Born in the UK and raised in Amsterdam and California, ANOHNI relocated to NYC in her late teens, forming her group The Johnsons in 1998 and establishing a unique path as an artist with a focus on animist and eco-feminist themes.

ANOHNI’s sixth studio album, My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross (2023), continues to examine societal structures, spirituality, and our relationships with the biosphere. The record was named Album of the Year by The New Yorker and The Toronto Star. Politiken awarded it five hearts and called it “a delicate flame ignited by the soul music of the past,” while GAFFA characterized it as “an otherworldly experience.”

The artist reaches for courage, resilience, and ceremony in the face of an unprecedented contemporary landscape, and emphasizes, “For me, there’s no heavenly respite; Creation is a spectral and feminine continuum, and we remain an inalienable part of Nature.

For this concert, ANOHNI will be joined by nine musicians including Julia Kent (cello), Maxim Moston (violin), Mazz Swift (violin), Doug Wieselman (multi-instrumentalist) Leo Abrahams (guitarist), Gael Rakotondrabe (piano), Sam Dixon (bass), Chris Vatalaro (drums) and Jimmy Hogarth (guitarist/producer) and Johanna Constantine (dance).
