Natalia Mann

Natalia Mann is known for her contemporary style of harp playing. She works internationally as performer, composer, collaborator and recording artist in a diversity of genres.

Mann was born in New Zealand in 1975, of Samoan/Anglo-Celtic descent. She began studying classical music at the age of four when her family lived in Los Angeles, her primary instruments being harp and piano. She continued her studies in New Zealand eventually to rank among the top harpists in the country, playing for the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, new music ensembles, opera, ballet and theatre. Curiosity led her to explore other forms of music, and she realised her passion for improvisation. She move to Melbourne, Australia where she immersed herself in the vibrant international folk and roots music scene. She collaborated with various artists in the creation of meditation music, pop, hip hop, lounge, experimental, abstract, and other contemporary styles. Celebrating her Pacific Island heritage in the process, she co-founded the award winning Samoan trio Sunga, and the Brown Roots Pacific arts collective. She was an original member of the Turkish groups Gece and Unified Gecko, and the improvisation trio Shima.
