The powerful voice of Joydah Mae Bernardo will take us on a journey at Vegan Expo 2021. Joydah’s voice comes from a bloodline of many powerful voices. She carries the mana of both sides of her lineage and she uses the commercially successful skills of her father, a professional musician, alongside the sacred chants of her mother’s native mountain home high in the Kabayan, Benguet to create a channeling style that is just beginning to build momentum.
