Josanne Francis

Good Hope Community Recreation Center
14715 Good Hope Road
Silver SpringMD


Born and raised in the twin-island Republic of Trinidad & Tobago, Josanne Francis is an internationally known steelpan performer and music educator. Her music delivers that special 'extra' that separates her from even the greats, and catapults listeners into a unique and exceptional place. With hands that seem to float like the wings of a butterfly with a 'wand-like' touch, her music is not devoid of power when needed. Ms. Francis' music blends together and draws influences from traditional Calypso music, Jazz, Indian, Funk, Rock and Classical music- a unique mix which is not typical for the instrument. Josanne has performed at venues such as the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall and has appeared as a guest artist at festivals and universities across the United States, including the San Juan Concervatory of Music, San Juan Puerto Rico and the Caramoor Jazz Festival, NY.

This performance is a part of an inaugural concert series at the Good Hope Community Recreation Center. This event does not take place at Strathmore.
