Los Angeles-based HÄANA describes herself as a sound artist rather than as a musician, and listening to her otherworldly, ethereal violin exursions, one can understand why. This latest offering is a remix of her song “Brym Al Mar” by Dimond Saints, an Oakland, California duo, whose mission it is to expand the boundaries of electronic music. This musical interpretation conjures some heady magic, as a classical string quartet is brought into an exotic overseas dance hall. The result is hypnotic.
This is the first track from an album of different remixes of this beautiful song. You can preorder it here. It comes out on June 14.
HÄANA’s original song is inspired by a traditional Norwegian folk song. Her unique sound merges traditional Scandinavian folk music with the latest electronics and her exotic, mysterious vocals. She has opened for The Rolling Stones, shared the stage with Kanye West and has performed at some high-profile events, such as President Obama’s Inaugural Ball and Michael Jordan’s wedding (now, there’s a juxtaposition!). Her discography thus far includes three singles and two EPs. This stunning music can be heard on her bandcamp site, and please support this innovative artist!
