Cornish Music Series Presents Jessika Kenney & Friends
Un/tradtional vocalist Jessika Kenney brings together Gamelan Pacifica, Eyvind Kang, and other special guests to give a "narrative concert" inspired by a re-reading of the appearance of 'Samsu Tabarit' at the Javanese court. Through the prisms of Classical Javanese and Persian literature, language, mantra, and mode, the concert atmospherically follows Shams' shattering of the orthodox from within as he wins the heart of Rumi.

Performers include Jesse Snyder, Anne Stebinger, Stephanie Helm, Eyvind Kang (Viola), Brian Robertson, Mindy Johnston, Hamin Honari (Percussion), Gamelan Pacifica.

Vocalist Jessika Kenney's work demonstrates deep appreciation and understanding of both traditional musics  and experimental methods. She has performed and recorded Classical Persian vocal repertoire with ney master Ostad Hossein 'Omoumi, as well as new and traditional Javanese music with Gamelan Pacifica and Gamelan Madusari. She has also performed or recorded the music of numerous contemporary composers including John Cage, Jarrad Powell, Eyvind Kang, and Tadao Sawai. From 1994-97 she studied with the jazz vocalist Jay Clayton; for several extended periods between 1997-2001 Kenney lived in Indonesia, studying and performing traditional Javanese vocal music with Nyi Supadmi and collaborating on music and theater in experimental settings. She currently studies classical Persian vocal music with Ostad Hossein 'Omoumi.
