Our fantastic South African musical prodigy provides exceptional live music for a wide variety of events and is an extraordinary classical and contemporary female harpist. Her brilliant status is solidified by having won numerous national and international awards and scholarships.

The Johannesburg harp player generally adopts a funky unconventional look but loves to dress for the occasion and is more than happy to customise her look or outfit for any event. This female harpist is classically trained and also a master of improvisation. This makes her a one-of-a-kind, invaluable asset to any event. She can play any style of music, produce and compose in any style and blend in with any band, singer or DJ. 

Her performances are fully tailorable to your event and depending on what live music you would like. You have the choice of a standard acoustic harp or, to make more of an impact, she is the owner of the only electro-acoustic harp in Africa. The harpist is able to perform with the just the harp or along to backing tracks. 

Having begun her career at an early age, the Johannesburg harp player is fully established performer with unlimited experience. Not only did she reach the top 18 of South Africa’s Got Talent, but she joined the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra  at only 15 years old and consequently been part of several Orchestras in South Africa. The harpist has collaborated with many artists as well as Mercedes Benz Fashion Week for Marianne Fassler, Game of Thrones International Launch of Season 6, Celebrity High Tea at The Rosa, Palazzo Hotel and many other high profile events.
