2022 Moisture Festival: Opening March 17

The untamed and inimitable Jet Black Pearl from the port of Amsterdam spent many years in the south of France before settling in Portland in 2014. She has performed on more than a thousand stages all over the world.

Jet is a creator of alternative worlds filled with surreal humor and wry observations. Intelligently zany, her songs are a mad hatter’s European party with a funky attitude. She uses her loop station to record grooves and layers of flute, vocal percussion and harmonies while squeezing one hot accordion.

 
During the pandemic, her Aunt Gertrude stayed in Jet’s house. Auntie studied her niece’s musical techniques closely and now, she occasionally shows up when Jet Black Pearl can’t make it to a show herself.

‘A formidable force of music, and truly has to be seen to be believed’ (Three Weeks, Edinburgh Fringe Festival).
