Emily Rosner is a seasoned professional soloist and small chamber musician as well as a founding member of the stunning girl band 'Zikora'.
Her diverse approach to harp playing and improvisation has lead to a unique writing style that covers many genres such as folk, soul, funk, and electronic music.
Pushing the harp's vast tonal differences, she experiments with loops, effects and sound design using the sonic ingredients of the harps natural vibrations.
