FHENA

Few artists have the ability to traverse artistis genres like Fhena merging spirituality, cultural identity and a fire performance factor into whatever project she approaches. As a poet, singer, actress and host, Fhena does just that.

Born in Rhode Island, Fhena began her path to artistry in the fourth grade writing a poem entitled “The Wind”. She became serious about writing in high school. Fhena was encouraged to publish her writings, but knew that it was not time. At that point, she was only bearing witness to social, economic and cultural injustices in her work. She wanted her voice to offer solutions. This desire set her on a path of discovery- encountering, confronting and conquering personal and collective challenges.

Fhena was first introduced to acting in college. She immediately recognized it to be a powerful vehicle to communicate the messages of the lessons she had learned on her journey. She soon moved to Philadelphia where she joined the teaching staff of The New Freedom Theatre, one of the country’s oldest Black theatres. She began as an assistant teacher and worked up to being the Assistant Director of the Pre-teen Summer Training Program. Knowing she found her niche, she returned to college and completed her M.F.A. in Professional Theatre (Acting and Directing) at North Carolina A&T State University.

During this time, Fhena never stopped writing. She cultivated this gift, incorporating instrumentation and vocals grafting her own sub-genre she named Spoken Soul. Fhena’s honesty and powerful lyrics ease her into the hearts of her audiences. Once there, she is able to stir emotions, provoke thought, and bring spiritual enlightenment delivering her message of hope, empowerment, and joy. Her debut cd “beauty from ashez” will soon be followed by a live recording in early 2016.

Fhena’s dedication to artistic development led her to create Ask the Artist and Edenic Soul and co-create Higher Ground, live music performance series that provide a platform for independent artists.

Fhena has appeared in some artistic capacity across the United States, in Antigua, Ghana and Israel. Because of her versatility, her artistry has been enthusiastically received by audiences in theatres, churches, cafes, schools and nightclubs. Fhena always stands out as an incomparable force speaking sincerely from the heart of her experiences hoping to inspire others. She says, “For me, inspiring people is not about getting them to reach for the stars. I want people to reach within themselves, as deep as they can stand to go, and discover and cultivate the potential within them.”
