Zosha Warpeha in Concert
Zosha Warpeha is a Brooklyn-based composer-performer working in a meditative space at the intersection of contemporary improvisation and folk traditions. Using bowed strings in tandem with her own voice, her performances explore transformations of time and tonality. She performs primarily on Hardanger d’amore, a resonant-stringed instrument relative of the Norwegian Hardanger fiddle that houses five bowed strings as well as five sympathetic strings. Her current work is informed by the cyclical forms, rhythmic elasticity, and the physical momentum of Nordic folk music, developed during her time living abroad in Oslo. Born in Minnesota, her artistic work has been supported by the US-Norway Fulbright Foundation, the Jerome Foundation, and the MN State Arts Board. Warpeha’s performance at the Scandinavian Cultural Center & Library will be part of a spring tour celebrating the release of silver dawn, her debut solo album on Relative Pitch Records (April 2024).
