The Global Harp, a Trans-Cultural Journey

The Global Harp, a Trans-Cultural Journey

Hosted by Natalia Castrillón

The sounds of the pedal harp, lever harp, kora and Colombian harp intertwine and engage in conversation with diverse musical languages and territories. Together with special guest musicians from different cultural backgrounds, Natalia guides us on this journey from traditional Colombian and African harp music to electronic soundscapes, experimental pop and improvised music.
