What is Tierra 47?
Tierra 47 is in a period of transformation in order to strengthen its online and offline presence. We will be back next year with a renewed edition.
Tierra 47 explores the new territories of the harp to develop languages that challenge the stereotype of the instrument and offer a better response to the wide variety of contexts that exist today, both in solo performances and in collaboration with other instruments.
Tierra 47 is the meeting place for the international harp community with the purpose of contributing to the transformation of the harp experience in the coming years.
Tierra 47 defies the limits of the harp and aspires to project and promote it to an unexposed public which brands it as a stiff, elitist instrument without taking into account the great variety of territories that are being explored today, both in solo performances as well as in collaboration with other artists.
- Iberoamerican personality and global scope.
- Organization of offline and online events.
- Creation of reflection spaces where the exchange of ideas and the learning of the work of others takes place.
- Design of transversal formats where the harp coexists with other disciplines.
Tierra 47 is founded upon the firm conviction that projects begin to make sense when they last.
The 2017 edition in Madrid has included the organization of a Harp Festival and a Harp Improvisation Competition. That was the starting point of a trajectory with itinerant vocation and online and offline development.
