"Grammy-nominated composer, flutist, and vocalist Nathalie Joachim is one of today's most dynamic and innovative musical forces," David Krauss, MET Opera Principal Trumpet and host of the Speaking Soundly podcast, says of his guest, whose new album, Ki moun ou ye, was released in February on New Amsterdam / Nonesuch Records. "Her compositions mesmerize audiences, weaving together classical, pop, electronic, and world music influences into a breathtaking tapestry of sound." You can hear their conversation about Joachim's life and music below via Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

On Ki moun ou ye, Haitian-American singer and composer Nathalie Joachim takes listeners through an intimate collection of music that ponders its title’s question: “Who are you?” Inspired by the remote Caribbean farmland that her family continues to call home after seven generations and performed in both English and Haitian Creole, the work examines the richness of one’s voice—an instrument that brings with it DNA, ancestry, and identity—in a vibrant tapestry of Joachim’s voice, and intricately sampled vocal textures underscored by an acoustic instrumental ensemble. You can get it and hear it here.

Joachim performs songs from the new album at Joe's Pub in New York City on July 16. You can get tickets here.
