Haneefah (she/ her), is a local artist/musician, capoeirista, and dancer who’s artist name travels across her creative interests. However, she identifies mostly as a singer-songwriter who’s a jack of all trades but a master of none. She wants to inspire, and help others through her music, her energy, and future creative works. Phoenix believes in the power of music and art as a channel to lift spirits, relate, heal, and fight injustice. She wants to leave a mark in this world by sharing Love, Peace, and Light which are three words that embody what she stands for as an artist.
RIOT RI (formerly Girls Rock! RI) is a volunteer-based non-profit that uses music creation, critical thinking, and collaborative relationships to foster collective empowerment and the development of healthy identities in girls, women, trans, and gender-expansive youth and adults.
