Colombian artist Natalia Castrillón is a multi-faceted harpist, singer and composer, whose musical roots lie in traditional Latin American music as well as classical and experimental music.

Based in Helsinki for the past several years, she is much in demand as a musician who is able to cross genre boundaries and touch the listener. Castrillón has developed her own personal way of playing, in which she combines innovative, percussive techniques with more traditional harp playing. Besides the lever harp, she uses the llanera harp, which is typically featured in the traditional joropo music of Colombia and Venezuela, also known as música llanera (music of the plains).

The concert features original compositions as well as Castrillón’s arrangements of Colombian folksongs. Acoustic instruments, vocals, live electronics and visuals create a unique world in which the traditional meets the experimental.

Performing alongside Castrillón are three Colombian musicians and artists based in Helsinki: cello performer Sergio Castrillón, sound artist Alejandro Olarte and visual artist Paola Guzman Figueroa, as well as Finnish guitarrist Topi Korhonen.
