Ani Williams is world-renowned
harpist and singer, and has recorded more than two-dozen albums of
original sacred music based on ancient spiritual traditions. She has
done seminal work in the study of sound healing and the relationship
between musical tones, the human voice and healing.
Ani Williams has been exploring the role of Mary Magdalene in the
emerging feminine since 1987, and guiding women’s pilgrimages to
Magdalene sites in France, Britain and Egypt. Her research of the
feminine disciples in the Gnostic texts has resulted in recordings
dedicated to Magdalene and Sophia, with music and chant in Aramaic,
Hebrew and Egyptian languages, incorporating ancient Middle-Eastern
music scales. Her writings on Magdalene blend history with poetic depth
and she is currently co-producing a series of documentary films on
Magdalene’s role in the grail mysteries.
Ani has performed internationally since 1985, in Central and South
America, England, Holland, Scotland and Egypt, in such venues as Saint
James Cathedral in London, Findhorn Foundation in Scotland, the Giza
Pyramids, Den Rus in Amsterdam, Centro de Cultura in Mexico City, and in
the United States for various conferences, including Tom Kenyon
Seminars, Women of Wisdom in Seattle, Institute For Noetic Sciences,
Delta Society in Atlanta, United Nations Fiftieth Anniversary in San
Francisco and for the annual Conference on the Arts, Portsmouth New
Hampshire. In 2005 Ani’s Egyptian harp music was chosen for the
Hatshepsut—From Queen to Pharaoh exhibit tour soundtrack at the De Young
Museum in San Francisco and the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
In May 2006, the Travel Channel featured Ani’s music and
presentation in Rosslyn Chapel, Scotland for a special program on the Da
