HIP Spotlight shines on Jana Mashonee

Jana Mashonee


Native American soloist Jana Mashonee tells us about what inspires her powerful performances, and what her records mean, in the HIP Spotlight interview below.

Her album American Indian Story is a “homage” to her heritage, she says. In the songwriting, she describes the life and adventures of a young girl who traveled, with her tribe, to the New World for the first time many thousands of years ago.
“It’s a parallel of my life,” Jana tells us.
In essence, it’s both a concept album and a personal journey–something near and dear to her heart.
