Very excited for the release of Amanda Gookin’s Forward Music Project 1.0, and grateful for the awesome love for the project in The New York Times! “This initial offering in Gookin’s planned series commences in high style, courtesy of the composer and multi-instrumentalist Nathalie Joachim’s track “Dwam Mwen Yo.” As with Joachim’s 2019 set, “Fanm d’Ayiti,” this opus draws energy and inspiration from the composer’s Haitian heritage. By merging Gookin’s live playing with recorded vocals, Joachim crafts what she describes as a ‘tribute to the Haitian women in my life who were central to my upbringing and continue to empower my own sense of womanhood.’ ”
