Jahna – Artist Bio
Balance: A state in which various elements form a harmonious whole and nothing is unduly emphasized at the expense of the rest.

“Thanks for your CD … It’s marvelous, fresh tastefully done. Beautiful voice with the spirit of the original composition and a twist….”
DJ/KPFK-The Global Village
Jahna began her musical journey as a soulful expression of the muse flowing through her. Thus was birthed In The Balance; her first solo CD. Creating an innovative blend of New World musical sensations, established classical Old World compositions, and original songs, Jahna’s sparkling vocals bridges both realms of this new musical groove.
Jahna has performed this exciting aural blend for film, television and live performance. Her work includes performances for the c3/GATE 'Immerse the Future' event at the LA Center Studios Screening Room, attended by leaders of the transformational/consciousness movement; as well as concerts at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, part of the NocTOURnals program; and opening for fashion designer Sue Wong’s extravagant Los Angeles show during LA Mercedes-Benz’ Fashion Week. Her singing is featured in the opening title for the film ‘Mythic Journeys’ with Tim Curry; ‘Y Yoga Movie’; ‘Journey of Seven Bowls’ CD series; ‘FRESH’ with DivAria, and the ‘2009 Vital Voices Kennedy Center Awards Ceremony’. In addition, Jahna co-wrote ‘Enlighten-Up’, the featured song in the film ‘Enlighten-Up’; winner of Best Narrative from Elevate Music and Film Festival. Most impressively, Jahna's lilting vocals opened the internationally acclaimed 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!
Jahna’s enjoyed international success in Southern Japan where her CD, In The Balance charted No. 2 single, and the album charted No. 4. Another single, ‘Flower Duet’ from 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’.
These successes have led to sold-out shows at the world-renowned Knitting Factory in Hollywood; performances at Conscious Life Expo in LA, The Green Festival in San Francisco; Go-Green Festival; YogaMonth Festival; Celebration of Oneness Festival; and live radio performances and interviews on Los Angeles’ 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.
