NINA LEANI – SINGER, MUSICIAN AND TEXTILE-ARTIST
Nina Leani plays the guitar, accordeon and violin. So far Nina has published one solo-CD with songs and music all written and performed by her.
In 2011 she published yet another project of her own music and songs, this time accompanied by two excellent musicians: Mikkel Bayer, violin and cello, and Charlie Andersen, bass. The trio call themselves SUBTERRANEAN FIREWORKERS.
Nina Leani comes from a Norwegian background. She has travelled throughout her life as a dancer, singer and musician, step by step making all of Europe her home .She has appeared on small and large stages in the most of Europe in a variety of contexts.
In recent years Nina has taken up creating physical images with left-over textiles from many different sources. From these scraps she creates stories with applications. Pictures are well known to tell in an image what a thousand words cannot.
“To sing, dance and make music is to me the greatest gift life can bring- giving me a reason to live” she says.”I like to say like Mahatma Ghandi: My life is my message!!”
