A Friend once told Petrina Bishop (creator of AKANNA Entertainment) the story of an ancient goddess named Akanna. Akanna was a Greek goddess and inventor of music, She held the perfect balance of femininity and strength. She was also a warrior. Petrina instantly connected to this. This is because Petrina is also a warrior, overcoming any hardships coming her way, and doing it all to the beat of the music she was singing. We at AKANNA Entertainment believe that music heals the soul. The goddess Akanna encapsulates that, thus inspiring the name AKANNA Entertainment.
