Joanna Goodale

Pianist & Composer


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 literature, with the comedian Pascale Bessard in Les Gourmandises de Satie, with Kora player Sankoum Cissokho around Mandinka music, and with Renato Häusler for candlelight concerts.
