A Native New Yorker of Dominican decent, Joann's sensibility of various cultures has allowed her to produce groundbreaking events within the Latino, Caribbean, Brazilian and art/dance communities for over six years now. The stars were all in her favor when her first involvement in the music industry was with the legendary party Body and Soul in 1998. Her affiliations include Francois K's. music label Wave Music and Deep Space. After her first trip to Brazil, she was moved to start a monthly event called ALMA NYC (myspace.com/almanyc) with DJ's True and Miller Cruz in 2004. Later, getting back to her more intimate roots, Joann began her next endeavor, a Latin party celebrating Afro-Latin soul called RAZA (myspace.com/razanyc). Joann continues to reinvent herself as she brings her personal flair to this musical life style! You can read up more on her at: myspace.com/joann_jimenez.
The South Street Seaport has historically been New York's gateway to the world. In that tradition, the soul series will offer musical samplings as diverse as the city itself!
