New CD \ Filled with songs of anarchy, drunkenness, hazy dreams, dark fantasies, and delusion sprinkled with isolated moments of hope and empowerment, “She Lost Her Head,” the newest album from Utah-based Gypsy punk band Juana Ghani , chronicles an enthusiastic and unwitting descent into madness. From the opening punk polka anthem “Watch It All Burn” through the final insanity of the title track, “She Lost Her Head,” this is Juana Ghani at their most lunatic.      Special guests appearing on the album are David Bowen (upright bass and backing vocals), Michael “Fish” McFadden of Barbaloot Suitz and Wasnatch (trombone and backing vocals), Jonali Sorensen of Barbaloot Suitz (backing vocals), and Brad McCarley of Tupelo Moan (backing vocals).   Artist Paul Hitter is the founder of the Balkan Expressionism art movement.  Currently living in Bucharest, Romania, his work is shown in galleries and concert venues throughout Europe and the United States.  Combining elements of street art, folk art, and iconic symbolism, he has captured the attention of people worldwide.  He has done artwork for the bands Gogol Bordello, Viza, and Koza Mostra, among others.   Produced by Brian and Leisl Bonell, “She Lost Her Head” was recorded and mixed at Salt Lake Recording Service by Brad McCarley and mastered at Man vs. Music by Mike Sasich.

About: Juana Ghani
Having become disenchanted with the way their worlds were moving through the slums of mediocrity, Juana Ghani broke all ties with everything safe and familiar and began to musically roam. Individually, they spent decades wandering the alleys and backstreets of rock-n-roll, blues, and musical theater, never really finding a place to call home. It wasn't until Gypsy feet met Minstrel soul that they found a place to belong.

It began as a pleasant diversion, a crossing of paths that led two strong, yet like-minded individuals to forge a bonding of their souls. As they joined together, blending past experiences with new directions, others joined the journey. Soon there was a parade of characters singing, dancing and playing songs that inspire joyful celebration and evoke feelings of deepest desperation. There is a passion in their music that extends across time and distance and that unites the hopes and dreams of people the world over.

Inspired by mountain breezes and worldly wanderings, the music of Juana Ghani embraces every aspect of the lives they lead. As songwriters, Juana is the voice and Ghani provides the music that allows her voice to fly. As performers, they are a group of musicians that just like to get together, eat some good food, drink a little ouzo and make music.

With Juana Ghani, it is only ever about the music. It is a music that touches souls and sets imaginations free.
