Djunah

Djunah is the Chicago-based noise-rock project of guitarist, bassist, and singer Donna Diane. She pulls triple duty, simultaneously playing guitar, singing, and pulverizing a Moog bass organ with her foot — a feat some have described as "mind-blowing."

Known for a massive, intense live sound, the passion project is fueled as much by big emotions as it is by love of gear. Diane, who has been featured on Premiere Guitar's Rig Rundown, is a self-described gearhead who learned to build footswitches to make simultaneously playing both instruments possible.

"Femina Furens," Djunah's second album, was named one of the best metal records of 2023 by Bandcamp Daily. The record fuses influences from formal poetry and heavy music to tell the story of diagnosis and continuing recovery from complex post-traumatic stress disorder, or C-PTSD.
