Djuwa Mroivili (Amsterdam, 1998) is a Comorian-Dutch pianist and performer from Amsterdam who poses on stage as a vulnerable storyteller, and uses music, words and body, among other things to tell her stories. Although she is trained as a classical pianist, she does not shy away from being critical of the classical music tradition and the role of (educational) institutes in it. She has been researching Black composers in the history of classical music, as well as regularly performing their works.
Composer Florence Price
Djuwa will play work of Florence Beatrice Price (1887-1953), an American classical composer, pianist, organist and music teacher. Price is noted as the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer, and the first to have a composition played by a major orchestra.
She composed over 300 works. In 2009, a substantial collection of her works and papers was found in her abandoned summer home.
