Amelia Romano's sound is an eclectic blend of austere serenity and kinetic vibrancy. With a B.A. from UC Berkeley, Romano takes what is known about conventional harp and surpasses every time. Pulling from first-hand experiences in South Africa and from her roots in a cultural hotbed in San Francisco, Amelia not only plays music from the repertoire but reprises them and creates originals that can be heard on her latest album, “New Perspectives.” Latin American, popular and jazz are all genres she touches but her music defines its own path.
