Sariyah Idan is a New York bred and New Orleans based independent singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, poet, dancer, and educator. Jazz and folk trained, hip-hop educated, and influenced by both Latinx/Caribbean sounds and her Jewish roots, she has an "ability to seamlessly combine a wide variety of disparate styles and sonics into a memorable sound all her own," (Tinnitist). She views honoring the sounds of both influences and ancestors as a form of cultural activism while her lyricism is hailed as "powerful, soulful, spirited songs filled with stories of struggle, love and social justice" (Fusicology).

Sariyah’s music has featured on Pacifica and NPR stations, WWOZ, college and online radio platforms. She’s rocked iconic venues The Kennedy Center in DC, Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, Nuyorican Poets Cafe in NYC, PANDA Platforma in Berlin, French Quarter Fest, regularly plays House of Blues NOLA, and is the host/producer of monthly event Songs For The People at The Howlin’ Wolf. In 2019 she was a Virginia Giordono Memorial Fund Honoree for performances of her debut LP “Breaking Shadows” recorded in Los Angeles, Berlin, and Lisbon.

Her first album recorded in New Orleans, “Glitter & Blood”, released Nov 3rd 2023 and is a continued collaboration with Berlin based engineer/co-producer Andy Schlegel.
Sariyah has shared stages with legends Pete Seeger, Lee “Scratch” Perry, and Yusef Lateef. As a regular street performer in New Orleans she is known among locals as “the most hauntinglybeautiful voice of New Orleans’ streets.”

LoRa Elizabeth is an Intentional Creativity student, singer-songwriter, poet, sound healer, improv artist. This is her first live performance in NWA. She has released five albums to date. Played in many groups in the Southwest and Midwest. In her opening set she will play a variety of instruments from the organic conch, dream-pipe to Electric bass and guitar.
