Internationally renowned harpist Alina Bzhezhinska has a strong reputation for innovation. This time she creates a unique sound on the harp with electronics and loop pedals, supported by Mikele Montolli (bass), Adam Teixeira (drums) and Joel Prime (percussion). Through a combination of 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 the likes of Dorothy Ashby's 'Afro-harping', Alice Coltrane's spiritual outputs and Sun Ra's free form jazz experimentation; as well as 90's Triphop and Kuti-esque Afrobeat rhythms.

Two years ago Bzhezhinska stormed the UK music scene when her quartet and appeared at the Barbican during the EFG London Jazz Festival alongside Denys Baptiste and Pharoah Sanders - and has been nominated for Best Live Experience of the Year at the 2018 Jazz FM Awards. Later she produced her critically acclaimed album, Inspiration (Ubuntu Music) featuring award winning saxophonist Tony Kofi. She performed at London Jazz Festival, Edinburgh International Festival, Royal Albert Hall, Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and WOMADelaide Festival in Australia.

Encouraged by her collaboration with Kamaal Williams, Shabaka Hatching and Ursula Rucker, she steps out in new jazz territory.
