Foonyap / Holy Hum
Part of Small World Music's 16th Annual Asian Music Series sponsored by TD Bank and presented in association with Wavelength and Canadian Music Week.
Asian folk electronica reflecting on a tumultuous journey to self-discovery meets a new ambient, neo-classical project with rotating members and no musical boundaries.
Calgary-based Foonyap is a classically-trained violinist with an incomparable sound. Her latest release “Palimpsest” is a haunting and challenging experimental-folk album, which CBC called "a stunning, colossal work that's a disconcerting as it is captivating." Dark soundscapes and powerful electronica reflect a cross-generational exploration emerging from a world permeated by rigid structures and exceptionally high standards.
