Alina Bzhezhinska / HipHarp Collective
Internationally renowned Alina Bzhezhinska, one of the leading harpists in the world today, has built a strong reputation for innovation.
Bzhezhinska draws from a variety of influences, including Dorothy Ashby’s ‘Afro-Harping’, Alice Coltrane’s spiritual music, Joe Henderson’s free form jazz experimentation and 90s Acid Jazz and Trip Hop.
As a composer, band leader and founder of the HipHarp Collective, Bzhezhinska is a one-woman powerhouse on a mission to bring the harp to the fore of contemporary sonics. Her new album, recorded with her HipHarp Collective, is out this October on the ground-breaking label BBE.
