Ancestor Song

Folk-soul singer-songwriter

What have our ancestors passed on to us? How do we use our gifts to serve our community? These are the questions Janice Jo Lee is interested in as a folk artist. Janice has prepared for us a compilation of her pieces she has composed in her healing journey over the past few years. They are songs of resistance, rest, remembering, regrowing and emerging into power and love.
