Muse in a Maze
A unique blend of World Fusion sounds, woven together into a rich tapestry of Native American flute, Middle Eastern percussion, storytelling, and improvisation. The music is sometimes hypnotic, urging introspection and meditation... sometimes lively, inspiring dance and movement... and sometimes humorous, provoking laughter and release. Enjoy the variety of soundscapes composed to entertain and inspire the soul! Johanna \'Xenobia\' Krynytzky began her studies in belly dance while at the University of Chicago in 1996. Johanna's style fuses Classical Egyptian technique with Fire Performance, Tribal Fusion, and modern musical interpretations. Raised with piano lessons, her interest in music was re-kindled when she was introduced to the doumbek, the Arabic drum, and the finger cymbals used in belly dance. From there she delved into exploring the frame drum and the riqq (Arabic tambourine). In 2000 she joined Loud Zoo, an improvisational music and dance ensemble. In 2004, her passion for dance led her to start Hip Expressions Dance Studio with her partner, Karen Sun Ray. In 2008, A Muse in a Maze was created, a collaboration of her percussion training and her aunt Lydia Swystun\'s Native American Flute music. Currently she directs both Hip Expressions and Loud Zoo, coordinating classes, performances and community events in Tampa Bay and beyond.
