Pia Salvia’s Journey

World Harp Competition semifinalist Pia Salvia presents her original program: Pia Salvia’s Journey.

“Over the past couple of years, I have traveled to several places around the world and explored different types of music. I was inspired by the exotic rhythms of Brazil, the fire and energy of Flamenco music, the rhythmic complexity of Balkan music, the warmth of Middle Eastern music, and more. This music influenced my composition process and shaped my identity as an artist. My concert fuses harp tradition and the characteristics of the harp with different styles of music from around the world. The program consists of original compositions that are influenced by those different traditions (Flamenco, Bossa Nova, Middle Eastern, ethnic) and an arrangement of a pop song. The traditional aspects are combined with modern grooves, electronics (loop station, effects pedals), jazz concepts, improvisation and more.”
