Kwannon is the ethereal/wyrd folk project of Jenne Micale, formerly of the strange folk band Belladonna Bouquet. Shoshen, Jenne's true love and an accomplished percussionist, also has joined the project, especially for live performances.

Jenne's influences range from medieval and ethereal music to opera, chant, Pagan ritual and mythology, Victorian and Romantic poets, and the Carmina Gadelica. A classically trained singer, Jenne also uses instruments from around the world, giving her music a touch of the mysterious and otherworldly.

For the curious, these instruments include the lap harp, kantele (Finnish zither), mountain dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, bowed psaltery, valiha (Madagascar zither, bulbul tarang, harmonium, shruti box, udu, doumbek and djembe, among sundry others.
