Interview by: Pavlena Todorova
Why did you decide to join the Studio A project?
I draw huge inspiration for all my music and art from nature, and always have since I was a little girl. I strive to be more conscious of what I consume, being as zero waste as possible, and being aware of how my daily choices effect the environment. So
naturally when I got asked to participate, I was excited because my creativity and my lifestyle are so intertwined.
You ultimately produce your own music. Is it hard to be independent?
It’s definitely a challenge, but also so rewarding because it’s complete freedom of expression. That too can be a challenge because I tend to be abstract and sometimes things get lost in translation. I’m always growing though, so this year I’ve been
doing more collaboration and seeing the benefits and beauty in letting go of being in complete control.
Drawing inspiration from nature, can you describe your connection with the environment in one word?
Natural. As in, it comes easy, it just is, it’s natural.
You sing about harmony and freedom, do you incorporate this in your life as well?
Everyday. Every day I get free, every day I learn more about what that truly means, and every day I do what I gotta do to maintain my natural state of balance and being so my spirit stays in its right space… In general this looks like prayer, yoga,
eating healthy, meditation, lots and lots of tea, sunshine, trees, breathing deep, and of course, creating..
Of all the instruments that you play, which one is your favorite?
My grand pedal harp!
