Josanne Francis, Steelpan Fusion

Saturday, August 10

Josanne Francis, Steelpan Fusion

Good Hope Community Recreation Center
14715 Good Hope Road
Silver Spring,  MD


Born and raised in the twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Francis is an internationally known steelpan performer and educator. Her music blends influences from traditional Calypso music, jazz, Indian, funk, rock, and classical music—a unique mix not typically heard on the steelpan. Transporting audiences to new places through her unique musical fusion, Francis has performed at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, the San Juan Conservatory of Music in Puerto Rico, and the Caramoor Jazz Festival in New York.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome! Reservations are not required, but appreciated to help us plan.
