Lydia Violet
Lydia Violet – Violinist in the Romani tradition/engaged singer/songwriter creating music inspired by folks, blue and protest traditions

Lydia Violet is a Ramani-heritage violinist and passionate singer/songwriter, creating music inspired by folk, blues, and protest traditions. She also plays with singer/songwriter Ayla Nereo, gospel blues group Reverend Sekou and the Holy Ghost. She uses her stunning violin sounds and soulful voice to bring her listeners into deep communion with the beauty of our world. Lydia’s musical inspiration arises from her experience with ecological and social justice activism, participating in the great work of restoring peace and dignity to our world.

Lydia has also pioneered the workshop “Music As Medicine in our Time.” These multi-day immersions stem from her eight-year study with the scholar of deep ecology and Buddhism Joanna Macy, who explores how to foster greater internal resiliency and strength in the face of a world in crisis. Lydia’s workshops combine Macy’s “Work That Reconnects” with the power of music to bring healing and strength to the individual and to our larger communities.
