“ANOHNI:  It’s Time To Feel What's Really Happening"
For the first time in a decade, ANOHNI presents a concert with the Johnsons. Drawing from her new album My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross as well as songs from throughout her catalogue, ANOHNI issues a challenge to herself and to the world to Feel What's Really Happening.

Over two nights at the Philharmonie de Paris, ANOHNI will be joined by a 9 piece band including Julia Kent (cello), Maxim Moston, Doug Wieselman (multi-instrumentalist) and Jimmy Hogarth (guitarist/producer).

With music embracing a time of change and upheaval, ANOHNI issues a challenge to herself and to the world to Feel What's Really Happening.

Born in the UK and raised in Amsterdam and California, ANOHNI relocated to NYC in her late teens, forming her group in 1998 and establishing a unique path in music with a focus on animist and eco-feminist themes. ANOHNI's musical journey has spanned genres - from electronic experimental to avant-classical, dance, and soul. Achieving breakthrough success in 2005 with I Am a Bird Now (2005), she garnered the UK Mercury Music Prize. Notable releases since include The Crying Light (2009), Swanlights (2010), and live albums Cut The World (2012) and TURNING (2014). In 2016, she released the sharply political experimental electronic album HOPELESSNESS, produced by Hudson Mohawke and Daniel Lopatin. The same year, she received an Academy Award nomination for the environmentalist elegy, Manta Ray, featured in the film Racing Extinction (dir. Louie Psihoyos, 2015).

ANOHNI's sixth studio album, My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross (2023), continues to model and encourage transformation in our ways of thinking about spirituality, societal structures, and our relationships with the biosphere. The record was named album of the year by The New Yorker.  The artist reaches for courage, expression, resilience, and ceremony in the face of an unprecedented contemporary landscape, and emphasizes, “For me, there’s no heavenly respite; Creation is a spectral and feminine continuum, and we remain an inalienable part of Nature.”
