Pura Fé 'Follow Your Hearts Desire'

Pura Fé 'Hold The Rain'

Pura Fé Antonia ("Toni") Crescioni is a mother, singer, songwriter, poet, musician, artist and dancer. She founded the first native women's a cappella trio, Ulali and created a style and genre that blends traditional native american music with contemporary musical styles.

She was born in New York City and raised by her mother in a gifted family of female singers that are descendants of the Tuscarora Nation that had migrated from North Carolina to New York in the early 1900’s. Her mother, Nanice Lund, whose parents are mixed-blood Indian, was a classically trained opera singer who toured with Duke Ellington and his Sacred Concert Series. Her father, the late Juan Antonio Crescioni-Collazo was from Puerto Rico, of Taino Indian and Corsican ancestry. He named her Pura Fé which translates from Spanish as "Pure Faith".

After hearing guitarist Kelly Joe Phelps perform, Pura Fé was inspired to pick up the acoustic lap slide guitar, a dying tradition and style that was once strong in eastern N.C. native communities. After three months of teaching herself her own songs on guitar, she recorded her 2nd solo album, Follow Your Heart's Desire, released on the Music Maker label. The album was a collection of anthems, stories, protest songs and Iroquois/Tutelo Social Dance songs, that all state the influence of Indigenous music on Blues music and history. One year later, she opened for Neil Young in Berkley, CA., singing Rise Up Tuscarora Nation and Find the Cost of Freedom. As a solo artist, she has also opened up for Herbie Hancock, Taj Mahal, Al Jarreau and George Duke.

Pura Fé won a NAMMY (Native American Music Award) for Best Female Artist in 2006. She also won a L'Académie Charles Cros Award (France's Grammy) for Best World Album.
Pura Fé's third album, Hold The Rain, was released in 2007 with Seattle-based guitarist, Danny Godinez.
