“With sly loveliness, Ms. Joachim, a Haitian-American composer, flutist and vocalist, sketches a whole universe, conjuring the stories of Haitian women.” – The New York Times
“No more joyous chamber-music collection has arrived this year than “Fanm d’Ayiti.”” (2019)
– The New Yorker
“Even when brief and minimalist, Nathalie Joachim’s compositions cross complex ranges of emotion. Here, in a piece for cello (and vocals recorded by its composer), the somber cast of mood at the opening is complicated by a change in gait. The effect is akin to what you might feel inventing a new dance on the spot, while trudging through otherwise grim surroundings.”– The New York Times (on “Dam Mwen Yo”)
Nathalie Joachim is a Grammy-nominated flutist, composer and vocalist. The Brooklyn born Haitian-American artist is hailed for being “a fresh and invigorating cross-cultural voice” (The Nation). She is co-founder of the critically acclaimed urban art pop duo, Flutronix, and comfortably navigates everything from classical to indie-rock, all while advocating for social change and cultural awareness.
