Balance: A state in which various elements form a harmonious whole and nothing is unduly emphasized at the expense of the rest.
Jahna began her musical journey as a soulful expression of the emotions flowing through her mind; thus was birthed her first solo CD, In The Balance. Ever reaching for a more seemless blend of New World musical vibes and established classical Old World compositions, Jahna’s sparkling voice comfortably bridges both realms of this new musical groove.
Recently, Jahna performed this exciting aural blend for the c3/GATE 'Immerse the Future' event at the LA Center Studios Screening Room; attended by leaders in the transformational/conscious movement: Reverend Michael Beckwith, John Raatz of GATE, and Jerome Glenn of the UN Millennium Project. In addition, Jahna’s creative exploration was rewarded when In The Balance charted a No. 2 single in Japan, while the entire CD charted to No. 4. In The Balance has been featured on Showtime’s highest rated drama series, ‘The L Word’ and charted No. 1 on iTunes as the top download from ‘The L Word: The Third Season Soundtrack’. She’s sung in many artistic projects such as; ‘20b09 Vital Voices Kennedy Center Awards Ceremony’, Journey of Seven Bowls CD series’, ‘Y Yoga Movie’, ‘Mythic Journey’ and Sue Wong’s extravagant fashion show for Mercedes-Benz’ Fashion Week in Los Angeles. Jahna’s co-writing of the song ‘Enlighten-Up’, enjoyed being the featured song for the winner of ‘Best Narrative’ from The Elevate Music and Film Festival from the film ‘Enlighten-Up’. Most recently, Jahna's lilting vocals opened the internationally downloaded video, ‘Legend of Zelda Movie Trailer’. The video, viewed by over 2.5 million viewers in its first 24 hours, was ranked as the #3 Digg story in the world!
These successes led to Jahna’s featured performances at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles as part of the NocTOURnals program, her opening number for fashion designer Sue Wong’s extravagant Los Angeles show at Mercedes-Benz’ Fashion Week, her sold-out shows at the world-renowned Knitting Factory in Hollywood, her performance (with Acoustica) at the Green Festival in San Francisco, Go-Green in LA, Celebration of Oneness festival, and KULA and her live radio singing and interviews on Los Angeles’s KPFK 90.7 FM’s The Global Village, Seattle’s KZOK 102.5 FM’s The Bob Rivers Show, and Las Vegas’s KLAV 1230 AM’s SoulSearch.
Jahna also sings lead vocals for Acoustica, an ensemble that specializes in classical and original music with a world-music flair and spiritual influence, featuring Tibetan meditation singing bowls, East Indian tabla, Middle Eastern kawala, flute, harmonium, bass, and acoustic guitar. “Acoustica utilizes the components of world and classical music in combination with original pieces written by Michael Perricone, Acoustica’s founder and music director,” says Jahna. “We perform songs in English, Italian, French, Latin, and even Sanskrit. It’s thrilling to see this music move and excite people in all kinds of settings.”
The eponymous CD Acoustica, In The Balance, and other recordings by Jahna are available for instant download at www.omstream.com and iTunes. To learn more about Jahna and her music please visit www.jahnamusic.com.

O.K. have to say — it's ridiculous not to carve out time to be together... We've both thrown ourselves into the big machine of life and are over consumed by it. I'm winding up a 9 month Feminine Power Mastery course which has totally wrapped me up. — Good progress but sooooo involved.
I'm going to look back into your Cirque dates and hope to attend — Congratulations girl. Fabulous.
I also see you and Ms. Kate have other fish in the pan along w/your mate, Michael.
