Joanna is available to perform Classical North Indian sitar for concerts, weddings, private functions, lecture demonstrations and events. She is based in the San Francisco Bay Area but also performs throughout the US and internationally. She works with the best professional tabla players and also with other traditional Indian instruments such as sarod and bansuri.
"Joanna performed as part of a trio during our wedding reception. We had an Indian-Scottish fusion, and having Joanna and her fellow musicians perform was just wonderful. The music was beautiful, but what we appreciated the most was that they learned a special song just for the event - it was the song that my mother in law was singing forty years ago when she met my father in law. My in laws were completely surprised and so touched by the performance - it bought tears to their eyes and they still talk about it as one of the highlights of the day. Joanna and her team were very professional and courteous to work with; we cannot thank them or recommend them highly enough."
"My San Francisco Music Booking Agency has had many occasions to engage the services of Ms. Mack for various client functions in the last several years. Dealing with a wide range of performers in my business I would have to say that this artist is a perfect delight to work with, responsive to phone calls, attentive to details at the job site, and invariably earning a very positive response from guests and most importantly the client themselves. She and her musical associates observe very professional standards indeed. My only disappointment are the times I call when she is already booked!"
"We have had the pleasure of enjoying the sitar playing of Joanna Mack on several occasions. She is a consummate performer and has always delivered beautiful, amazing and enriching music to our events. I give her the highest recommendation, and would not hesitate to engage her for future events and performances!"
"We were very pleased to have Joanna Mack perform at our wedding reception in the Women's Building in the Mission District of San Francisco back in 2008. Joanna had the good suggestion to add tabla and sarod players to accompany her sitar playing. We spent a wonderful summer in India in the year prior to our wedding, so having Indian classical music at our reception was a personal detail that made the occasion all the more memorable. Joanna was professional and courteous (and flexible!) throughout the planning of the event up through the performance. We highly recommed her."
