Description

Originally from Ukraine/Poland and now based in London, Alina Bzhezhinska is an internationally renowned harpist. She has performed with leading classical and jazzmusicians such as Django Bates, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and the Glasgow String Quartet. Her duo, with award-winning jazz vocalist Niki King, supported GregoryPorter at the 2017 Edinburgh Jazz Festival.Alina's critically acclaimed Quartet led the 80th Birthday celebrations for Alice Coltrane around the UK in 2017. Their appearance at the EFG London Jazz Festival in a special bill featuring Pharoah Sanders - 'A Concert for Alice and John' - has been nominated for Best Live Experience of the Year at the 2018 Jazz FM Awards.Her new album, Inspiration, will be released in June 2018 through Ubuntu Music. "I set myself on a mission to tell Alice and John Coltrane's story in my own words, through my own interpretation of their music and my compositions," explains Alina.Her music fits under the banner of contemporary jazz with its virtuosic playing and improvisation. However the appeal of Inspiration will reach well beyond a jazz audience because of its unique combination of genres.
