Echoing the sounds of the Nordic coast and urban dance halls, cinematic sonic bass producer/violinist/vocalist HÄANA blends traditional melodies and improvised instrumental/vocal music with cutting edge electronic sounds, counting Massive Attack, Björk, Phaeleh, Trentemøller, and Ólafur Arnalds as influences in crafting her production. The resulting sonic palate takes listeners on “a kind of Massive Attack-esque mystical journey” (PopMatters), whose destination is a crossroads between classical and contemporary, organic and man-made, familiar and mysterious. HÄANA has shared the stage with numerous musical giants (The Rolling Stones, Kanye West, Bassnectar, MOBY, The National, EOTO) and appears on releases by Irma Thomas (Simply Grand), Beats Antique, Random Rab, An-Ten-Nae, Desert Dwellers, among others. “Luminous frequencies and violin instrumentation tied with foreign Icelandic lyrical messages are found in her voice…” (AfroMonk) “It has the ability to seep into your soul in ways only orchestral and electronic music can.” (Infectious Magazine)
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 Ganesan, Jill Knouse, and many others. She also facilitates meditation experiences with her brand DEEPSØNØS.
