Alice Lloyd’s Caney Convocation Series continues tomorrow, February 12th, with a visit from singer/songwriter Jenn Mundia. Based in North Carolina, Mundia has spent many years collecting inspiration from living and performing “down south,” as well as on the streets of Boston and New York City. Her Kenyan background also influences her raw and beautiful tone that tells a story all on its own. A powerhouse voice and boisterous personality to match will have you entertained before she even sings a note. A graduate of Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music, Mundia didn’t actually study performance. She spent her years there learning the art of audio engineering, only performing in her free time. Shortly after graduating, she discovered her niche back on the stage where she strives to reinvent the acoustic performance. She will have you clapping and singing in no time.
“I like getting the audience involved that way we all have a good time,” Mundia says. “If you don’t like sing-alongs, you should probably hide in the back!”
Among her many influences Mundia lists Lauryn Hill, India Arie, and Corinne Bailey Rae. She is popular for her impressive song covers, warm voice, and inviting songwriting. She is currently touring college campuses across the United States.
Please join us for convocation in what promises to be a memorable and refreshingly enjoyable hour of music! The show is set for tomorrow at 1 PM in the Estelle Campbell Center for the Arts (CAC) on the campus of Alice Lloyd College.
