Join Inside Out Steelband, the KIPP Austin Collegiate Steelband and guest steel pan artist Josanne Francis for a night of diverse steel band music in the beautiful setting of One World Theatre.
Born and raised in the twin-island Republic of Trinidad & Tobago, Josanne Francis is an internationally known steelpan performer and music educator. Her music delivers that special ‘extra’ that separates her from even the greats, and catapults listeners into a unique and exceptional place.
With hands that seem to float like the wings of a butterfly with a ‘wand-like’ touch, her music is not devoid of power when needed. Ms. Francis’ music blends together and draws influences from traditional Calypso music, Jazz, Indian, Funk, Rock and Classical music- a unique mix which is not typical for the instrument.
