A Musical Evening with Joy Ike | Philadelphia Museum of Art | 17 May 2019

Christina and I discovered Joy Ike back in 2017 during the Turks Head Music Festival. I was so happy to see that she was performing at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and I enjoyed a musical evening with a kind, gentle soul.



At the end of the show, I had the opportunity to meet Joy Ike again and she agreed to a selfie.



She said she somewhat remembers Turks Head Music Festival, but here are the fun photos from 2017:

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    What a treat it was for your to enjoy a show by Joy Ike at one of your favorite venues The Philly Museum of Art two years after first discovering her at the Turks Head Music Festival. Joy has a smooth, soulful style, described in an article I read as “an indie-infused mix of pop, jazz, and neo-soul.” The article states that Joy is Nigerian, was raised in Pittsburgh, and was voted “Best Solo Artist” by the Pittsburgh City Paper, the city’s alternative newspaper, for the last three years. I smiled when I noticed that little toddler girl dancing as Joy sang. You took some wonderful pictures with the artist in 2017 and again last Friday night. I am very happy you had such a pleasant experience.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
