LA-based producer/violinist/vocalist HÄANA’s original productions are like a filmscore: Nordic and Icelandic-tinged music merged with digital and analog. She counts Massive Attack, Björk, and Trentemøller as influences in crafting her sounds, featuring electronica influences, rhythmic syncopation, extensive use of strings, vamping and synthetic sonority. The resulting sonic palate takes listeners on a journey whose destination is a crossroads between classical and contemporary, organic & man-made, familiar and mysterious. HÄANA has been featured in Vogue, and special appearances include performing for Michael Jordan’s wedding, opening for The Rolling Stones with Kanye West, and for Obama’s Inaugural Ball.
HÄANA is also deep in the yoga/music/meditation scene, and performs her original orchestral and intuitive scores at numerous yoga festivals and studios around the world, including US and Canadian Wanderlust Festivals, collaborating with lauded teachers Elena Brower, Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, Eoin Finn, Aarona Lea, and many others. She facilitates meditation experiences with her project DEEPSØNØS.
