Join us for the The Moon Represents My Heart concert series, a reflection of the current exhibition which focuses on the transformative power of music and identity. Tonight, we present a night of music and conversation with Asian American female singer/songwriters Jay Miners, Yify Zhang, Samantha Cadorniga, ÊMIA, and Sarah Kang. This engaging roundtable will feature songs by each artist, as well as conversation around their songwriting process and how their Asian American identities shape their work as artists.

Jay Miners is a NYC-based folk/pop singer-songwriter. Her music has been described as a dreamlike and serene. She has performed in venues across the city, including The Bitter End and Rockwood Music Hall. Jay was a semi-finalist at the Coffee Music Festival and a contributing songwriter at Songs of Love Foundation. Her most recent work was an EP titled “The Art We Make,” which explores the nuances and journey of creating art.

Yify (ee-fee) Zhang is an artist of cinematic alternative music. Her sound has been described to sit somewhere between indie pop and film track. Yify makes music to heal herself, and along the way she hopes others as well.

Samantha Cadorniga is a Filipino-American from Brooklyn, NY. Music has been and always will be a huge part of her life. She enjoys sharing moments with others when she gets the time to.

ÊMIA is the indie-pop artist project of Brooklyn-based songwriter/producer, Anh Le. As the Deli Magazine states, "she offers a brand of pure and potent pop that explores universal themes of broken relationships, almost-was romances and identity struggles." She recently dropped her debut EP, Little Secret on July 5th, 2019.

Sarah Kang is a NYC-based pop/jazz/soul singer-songwriter. Born in South Korea and raised in LA, Chicago, and Dallas, her music, much like her upbringing, crosses the borders of genres. Her latest EP “One” continues her love of telling stories of identity, childhood, and the passing of time.
