Da Riddim INya is a flow of rhythmic action, which burns with a fire called passion. We speak to the beat within everyone, which is our heart – the rhythm in us. It’s a calling you can hear through the beats, your soul cannot ignore…your feet they just want more, pulsing drums touching your core… This condition is called…Da Riddim INya!
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, counting Massive Attack, Phaeleh, Trentemøller, and Ólafur Arnalds as influences in crafting her sound. The resulting sonic palate takes listeners on “a kind of mystical journey” (PopMatters), whose destination is a crossroads between classical and contemporary, organic and man-made, familiar and mysterious. “Luminous frequencies and violin instrumentation tied with foreign Icelandic lyrical messages are found in her voice…” (AfroMonk) “It has the ability to seep into your soul in ways only orchestral and electronic music can.” (Infectious Magazine)
HÄANA has shared the stage with numerous musical giants (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 now being channeled into a electronic ambient indie pop direction, forging new avenues for violin through her own unique articulation of evocative and cinematic electronic music combined with laptop and voice.
HÄANA is also deep in the yoga/music scene, and performs her original orchestral and intuitive scores at numerous yoga festivals and studios around the world, including US and Canadian Wanderlust Festivals, collaborating with lauded teachers Elena Brower, Seane Corn, Eoin Finn, Shiva Rea, Schuyler Grant, Aarona Pichinson, and many others.
