Internationally renowned harpist Alina Bzhezhinska has a built a reputation for innovation since she stormed onto the UK music scene with her quartet in 2017.

For this new project, she creates a unique sound on the harp with electronics and loop pedals, supported by a new quartet line-up.

Through original works and covers, she pays homage to some of jazz, funk and hip-hop’s greatest innovators. Her new quartet draws from a variety of influences, including Dorothy Ashby’s Afro-harping, Alice Coltrane’s spiritual outputs and Sun Ra’s jazz experimentation; as well as 90’s trip-hop and Kuti-esque Afrobeat rhythms.

“Bzhezhinska shares with Alice (Coltrane) a mastery of the jazz harp.” ★★★★★ Will Hodgkinson, The Times
