MUSICIAN Born:

Sienná

Sienná is an awake-walking daydreamer, a blurry contrast of multiple styles, an illusionist of the vivid pastel sound, a contemporary traditionalist, and a beautiful reflection of the crossover of cultures we see in the modern world. She is a songwriter, producer, keyboardist, singer and experimental music sensation. As a Japanese expatriate in Norway and live-electronic artist who has performed across Europe and Asia over 10 years, Sienná not only acts as a unique innovator; but also fearlessly brings ‘no rules’ approach to creating improvisational mixes through a command of the avant-garde EDM genre consisting of electronica, house, jazz, and traditional-contemporary Japanese. Sienná is known for collaborations with renowned artists including Nils Petter Molvaer, a psychedelic jazz trumpeter from Norway, Mick Karn, a deceased English bassist, and The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, where Sienná performed as an opening act to the band in the UK on several occasions.
