Petra Hermanova (CZ)
Petra Hermanova is a musician and visual artist based in Berlin. In 2018 Hermanova began working with the autoharp and it has since become the central pillar of her musical practice. Drawing inspiration from folk, medieval drone, and contemporary textural expressions, as well as Appalachian autoharp music, she creates emotionally driven arrangements accompanied by vocals. In her lyrics, she speaks to the fragility and tenderness of the human condition, religious conceptions of death, and introspective landscapes through narrative and symbolism.
Petra Hermanova is presented through the Synapse Again project between Insomnia Festival in Tromsø and MeetFactory in Prague, which is supported financially by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through EEA grants.
