The Many Voices of Joan La Barbara

Vocalist and composer Joan La Barbara stops by the studio to chat and perform a live piece on the show "Midnight Snacks" with host Kathy Kennedy.

Listening to how La Barbara describes her performance pieces explains what type of artist she truly is; she is able to compose music and vocals while incorporating costumes, movement, and lighting arrangements in order to tell creation myths from various cultures.

WARNING: Her live performance will leave you making some strange noises.
