About

Internationally renowned Alina Bzhezhinska, one of the leading harpists in the world today, has built a strong reputation for innovation.
Creating a unique sound on the harp, with layered effects and electronics, Bzhezhinska will be supported by music supremo’s Mikele Montolli (bass), Joel Prime (percussion) & Adam Teixeira (drums).
Drawing from a variety of influences, including Dorothy Ashby’s ‘Afro-Harping’, Alice Coltrane’s spiritual outputs, Joe Henderson’s free form jazz experimentation & 90s Acid Jazz and Trip Hop, Bzhezhinska (composer, band leader and founder of the HipHarpCollective) is a one-woman powerhouse on a mission to bring the harp to the fore of contemporary sonics.With her new album, recorded in London last year with her HipHarpCollective, set for release in 2022 (BBE Records), expect to hear the harp as you’ve never heard it before.

“Alina Bzhezhinska Quartet… throws a spellbinding party to awaken the senses” – London Jazz News
