Episode 54: Anaïs Maviel

Anaïs Maviel is a vocalist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist—among other things—and brings her liquid vocals and entrancing storytelling to Resonant Bodies 2019 NYC Festival on Wednesday, September 4th, opening the evening with a solo voice and ngoni set. In this episode she talks with ResBods director Lucy Dhegrae about her song-writing process, how she developed a relationship with language (beginning as a vocalist who refrained from words), and how she came to play her custom 14-string kamale ngoni, a harp-like West-African instrument.
