about

Desirae Harp is a member of the Ona*staTis (Miwhsewal Wappo) Nation and a descendant of the Navajo Nation. She is a poet, college student, and community activist who grew up in Santa Rosa, California. Harpworked hard to learn and incorporate her indigenous language into her music and found her voice as a writer through her culture. Harp's lyrics inspire her to be strong and to deal positively with the challenges she has faced growing up as a Native youth. Though she had been writing songs since she was a girl, it was not until Harp started singing with Audiopharmacy that she gained confidence in her ability to become a professional singer and to use her voice as a tool for social change. Harp now uses her voice to advocate for the healing of mother earth and her community. She also works to empowers others by teaching them how to sing and to use their voices to tell their own stories. She has performed in the Native American Contemporary Arts Festival, Bioneers Conference, Native American Journalist Associational Awards Ceremony, One World Beat Festival, and Dancing Earth’s Origi-Nation: Roots and Seeds. She has performed with grammy award nominee R. Carlos Nikai, as a lead vocalist with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, and was the lead vocalist in an opera conducted by Grammy Award nominee Sara Jobin. She has shared the stage with acclaimed poets such as John Trudell, Jimmy Santiago Baca, and Lorna Dee Cervantes.
