Harp Nomad Foundation
We want all people to be incluled in the joy of harp playing, also people with low incomes, or people with special needs or disabilities. Among our students are people with autism and also blind ones.
The Harp Nomad Foundation is spreading the culture of Harp playing and building by providing harp lessons and performances. It is our mission to make harps more affordable and accessible and more suited for traveling. That is why we are devoloping and making our own building kits for Nomad Harps.
I am no typical harpist. I like to add more colour in the world by using the harp in creative ways with acrobatics, theater, storyting. The sky is not the limit.
Over the years I went a lot to festivals, as an artist, to give workshops and also as participant. Because of my autism I bumped into a lot of problems: with the preparation the journey, but also during the festivals. Often my expectations did not match with the reality and cultural code of the occasion. Now I have found people around me who support me as an artist, my vision and my ambitions. They guide me on my way to turn my dreams into reality with my foundation
About our harps
The harp is a family of stringed instruments. We perform and teach with pocket-size mouth harps, or tall wind harps with strings up to 4 meters and everything in between like more common celtic lever harps, South American Folk Harps and even a cross strung harp.
