HÄANA

(Bass Frequencies, Violin + Vocals)

Echoing the sounds of the Nordic coast and urban dance halls, cinematic sonic bass producer & violinist HÄANA blends folk songs and improvised instrumental / vocal music with cutting edge electronic sounds. Her sonic palate takes listeners on a mystical journey whose destination is a crossroads between classical and contemporary, organic and man-made, familiar and mysterious.

HÄANA has shared the stage with musical giants such as The Rolling Stones, Kanye West, Bassnectar, MOBY, The National, EOTO, and appears on records by Irma Thomas (Simply Grand), Beats Antique, and Random Rab, among others. With the June 2014 release of her debut solo album, BRYM, her ever-evolving sound is forging new avenues for violin through her unique articulation of evocative and cinematic electronic music.

"Party Girl" Pearl has arrived in the SF Bay Area, harvested from a virgin oyster where she had been cultured since the early 1910's. She began throwing elaborate costume parties in the 1920's on land, and by the early 2000's had become a part of the emerging electronic dance music scene. Today, Pearl blends these worlds with burlesque and the circus arts and creates immersive experiences for party-goers while supporting causes like women’s empowerment and water conservation.
