Description

Ayanna Witter-Johnson is a multi-talented singer, songwriter and cellist. She has a phenomenal mastery for seamlessly crossing the boundaries of classical music, jazz, reggae, soul and R&B.

In this special show, Hometown Roots, she explores the rich musical legacy of her Jamaican heritage in a night of new music, reworked classics and storytelling. With her virtuosic tap, strum, and bow of her cello, she incorporates a variety of rhythmic styles into her distinctive sound.

An acclaimed and celebrated performer, Ayanna has collaborated with many stellar artists, including Anoushka Shankar, Nitin Sawhney, Andrea Bocelli and Jools Holland. She has also toured extensively across the UK, Europe and the US and has been widely commissioned as a composer by leading organisations including the Royal Philharmonic Society and Young Vic Theatre.
