ANOHNI and The Johnsons: It’s Time To Feel What’s Really Happening

For the first time in a decade, ANOHNI presents a series of concerts with The Johnsons. Responding to a time of upheaval, she issues a challenge: “It’s Time to Feel What’s Really Happening.”

Traversing animist and eco-feminist themes, ANOHNI’s musical journey spans many genres—from electronic experimental to avant-classical, dance, and soul. After achieving breakthrough success in 2005 with I Am a Bird Now (2005), she won the UK’s prestigious Mercury Prize. Releases since include The Crying Light (2009), Swanlights (2010), and live albums Cut The World (2012) and TURNING (2014). In 2016, ANOHNI released the sharply political electronic album HOPELESSNESS, produced by Hudson Mohawke and Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and selected as one of the year’s top ten albums by The New York Times. That same year, she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song for the environmentalist elegy, “Manta Ray,” featured in Louie Psihoyo’s 2015 film Racing Extinction. ANOHNI’s sixth studio album, My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross (2023), examines societal structures, spirituality, and our relationships with the biosphere.

The artist reaches for courage, resilience, and ceremony in the face of an unprecedented contemporary landscape and emphasizes that, “For [her], there’s no heavenly respite; Creation is a spectral and feminine continuum, and we remain an inalienable part of Nature.”
