Heather Cornelius
(Paynesville, MN)

from Minnesota Harp Society and Paynesville EFC Worship Team, performing Alwa composed/arranged by Esteban Benzecry.

Submission Audio:

Artistic Statement

I chose Alwa because it is exciting to play and it offers a modern view of an ancient culture. The composer Benzecry uses unusual harp techniques, such as banging the strings, to invoke the rhythms and atmosphere of the pre-Columbian Aymara people.
