New Mountain


“Like a rising new mountain coming up from the sea…contemporary pop meets traditional native rhythms with a driving spirit and the wings of song! Jumping right in with the title cut, Joan Henry and Gus Mancini rev up a band of musicians as adept as themselves at bringing listeners over mountains and canyons, to New York City at midnight & back again right into the studio with them to laugh, to dance and to remember to dream…

The natural interweaving between the Tsalagi & Nde’ languages and English in her lyrics reflect an understanding of what it is to stand alive and well in two worlds— facing future with the firm support of culture and roots.”

“Treat yourself!” Doug Grunther, WDST radio, Woodstock NY
