Ananga Martin, along with Adrian Niles, Matt Smith, Michael Iafrate, Chad Burrall and John Whorton will perform songs from her recently-released album “Moonlight and Fire.”

Ananga’s music is reflective of her spiritual journey from a young girl in the orange groves and mountains of Southern California, to the soft, lush hills of West Virginia. Recorded over the winter, “Moonlight and Fire” includes the incredible musical talents of Niles, Smith, Burrall and Iafrate. Each wove their unique musical threads into the songs, resulting in a sound that is heartfelt, spontaneous, cohesive and healing. Playing with the band for the August 17 show is drummer Whorton, who will lend the heartbeat and add to the soulfulness of the group.

Artist Olivia Michele, who created the album cover, will be painting during the show, channeling the music into visual art. The finished painting will be raffled off at the end of the evening, with the proceeds going to HoH Share, Inc. to help with end of life expenses for those experiencing homelessness in our community.
