Joni NehRita is a multi-instrumentalist, self-produced singer/songwriter & arranger. The Jamaican-Canadian artist writes songs that explore themes of universal love, social justice and cultivating imagination and compassion. Her 4th full length album, ‘Love & Protest’ is a blend of soul, jazz & Afro-Latin/Caribbean grooves and was written, produced and mixed entirely by NehRita.
In addition to being a performer, NehRita is a TEDxED & Keynote Speaker and has been a music educator for over 20 years, teaching both privately as well as in workshop/masterclass format in high schools & universities including University of Guelph, Wilfrid Laurier University and Seneca at York.
