Asni the Harper portrait photo

Asni the Harper performs and improvises on medieval, renaissance and baroque harps. Her performing career has taken her all across Europe and the US, before she took up a teaching position at Victoria University Wellington and settled in New Zealand.

In 2008, after releasing her second solo album "Travels in Middle-earth", she decided to retire from the stage and concentrate on her web design, illustration and multimedia work.

Her CD albums and a range of sheet music suitable for harps and other early instruments are available in her online shop.

She still performs live once a year at the medieval market in Levin, and occasionally writes and records music.

Please go here to enquire about performance, public talks, or private teaching.
