Inspirational songs of enchantment and soul quests are by group leader Joanna Foster who weaves a magical mix of world influences, jazz and soul.

Following in the footsteps of Bobby Mcferrin and Sweet Honey in the Rock, Anima take acapella singing onto another level, weaving their voices together with such skill that it is hard to know where one voice ends and another begins.

The rich diversity of these four actor/singers ranges from acting with The Royal Shakespeare Company to singing jazz, folk and pop and performing at The Royal Opera House.

Singers are Cleo Bayley, Joanna Foster, Camilo Mendura, Matt Lane and Barbara Gellhorn.
