Joydah Mae

Medicine Music

12.30 - 1.00pm

The powerful voice of Joydah Mae Bernardo will take us on a journey at Soul Festival.

Joydah’s voice comes from a bloodline of many powerful voices. She carries the mana of both sides of her lineage and she uses the commercially successful skills of her father, a professional musician, alongside the sacred chants of her mother’s native mountain home high in the Kabayan, Benguet Philippines to create a channeling style that is just beginning to build momentum. Finding her voice has been an important growth for her, all her life, but especially so lately as she journeys into social action. She has begun to collaborate with musicians in her home land, and write in her native tongue to talk about the things that matter to her.

Joydah Mae will be performing her new album LEAVE LOVE EVERYWHERE.

Sharing her medicine to you all.
