The Tia Imani Hanna Project is made up of three musicians: Carolyn Koebel, percussionist; Elden Kelly, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist; and myself, Tia Imani Hanna, violinist, vocalist and composer. All share an interest in improvisation and in creating music that lives in the moment. All are concerned with shaping a sacred space with music, and in sharing those evolving moments with an audience.

We discovered our common musical interests while rehearsing for some performances. These interests were defined in the spaces between the songs. This creative space became the music itself — a place where we really connected. We have a lot of textural sounds among us, with Carolyn playing several kinds of percussion instruments, including calimba, cajon, cymbals, sheep toes and even a bedpan, with Elden playing on the Turkish cumbus, (pronounced june-boosh — this is a Turkish banjo), and the glissantar (a fretless guitar with six strings). He sings too. I play violin, and can also be heard as a vocalist and vocal percussionist.

Every piece of music on the CD is completely created in the moment. Spontaneous improvisation. No rehearsal. No pre-planning. We look forward to sharing the finished project with you.

We share with others like us on this planet a common connection through sound, spirit and music. We hope to convey a bit of that integral organic unity to as many people as possible as we traverse the spaces between us.

Ms. Hanna's debut album is The Book of Tia: Chapter One from Green Bow Music.

"...The Book of Tia is a very interesting mini album from a musician who knows how to play the violin, can sing as well and who dares to be different and releases music that’s unique."
