Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition 2014 - Finals - Laura Perrudin

17:05

Young harpist, singer and composer Laura Perrudin took an unusual and exceptional path to music. With jazz as her childhood soundtrack, she studied classical music while developing an interest in a wide array of genres including electronic and traditional music, soul and hip-hop. She trained with many musicians - from her birth region of Brittany to New York and Paris. Her quest to bring the harp to a richer and wider harmonic language paid off with harp maker Philippe Volant who crafted for her a celtic harp that is fully chromatic. It is with this new instrument that she gives life to the meandering harmonies of her original creations.
