Joanna Goodale

Classical Piano & Crossover


Born into a British-Turkish family, Joanna Goodale is a French-Swiss pianist with an eclectic and creative identity, opening up the classical repertoire to traditional world music and to her own comprovisations.

Passionate about multidisciplinary projects, she collaborates with Anna Benzakoun in the piano duo FRACTALES, with Sufi dancer Rana Gorgani in Bach to Sufi Dance, with Leili Anvar for poetry-music concerts around mystic litterature, with the comedian Pascale Bessard in Les Gourmandises de Satie, and with Kora player Sankoum Cissokho around Mandinka music.

Her first concept-album Bach in a Circle uniting Bach’s music with her own arrangements of Sufi chants (Turkey / Iran) will be out in 2019 with Label Paraty and with the support of the Fondation Tempo, the Fondation Engelberts, and the Swiss Radio RTS Espace-2.
