Laura Perrudin - Jazz Electro Melodic Live Act in Rennes

Laura Perrudin Short Info

Laura Perrudin's career has been both unusual and eclectic. Brought up on a diet of jazz from childhood, her classical music studies led on to both electronic and traditional music, via soul and hip-hop, through her encounters with innumerable musicians, in her native Brittany, but also in Paris and New York. Her mission is to open up the possibilities of the harp to a richer harmonic language, and it was in 2008 that she finally found the key, when harp-maker Philippe Volant custom-built for her a chromatic pedal-less harp with a single row of strings. This innovative instrument has allowed her to give free rein to the sinuous harmonies of her unclassifiable compositions where she has cultivated a veritable obsession for the textures and climates of her sound.
