This is an exciting time for composer, performer, and flutist Nathalie Joachim! She is touring and promoting her magnificent new album Fanm d’Ayiti, which just received a Grammy nomination for best world music album. I was absolutely thrilled to talk with her on the podcast about her work, her process, and how she has learned to let go and follow the lead of the work itself while creating.
Nathalie Joachim is a Grammy-nominated flutist, composer, and vocalist. The Brooklyn born Haitian-American artist is hailed for being “a fresh and invigorating cross-cultural voice”. (The Nation). She is co-founder of the critically acclaimed urban art pop duo, Flutronix, and flutist of the contemporary chamber ensemble Eighth Blackbird. Joachim comfortably navigates everything from classical to indie-rock, all while advocating for social change and cultural awareness. Her authenticity has gained her the reputation of being “powerful and unpretentious.” (The New York Times)
