Cellist. Vocalist. Composer.
The cellist and singer Lea Havelund creates a brilliantly poetic universe, where her voice blends warmly with the cello. Her education in classical music, musical instincts and ear for all kinds of music enable her to compose and arrange original works. The result is a sound that has never been heard before.
Lea Havelund has performed in numerous musical productions at the following venues: ØstreGasværk, Folketeateret, MalmøStadsteater and Det KongeligeTeater. She has played with many renowned and prizewinning musicians and performed as soloist with Odense Symphony Orchestra in addition to several solo concerts throughout the Nordic countries.
Lea draws on inspiration from many different genres and countries. This can be heard in her arrangements and compositions, which contain elements of tango, Nordic folk music and jazz. The soft tones of the cello simultaneously reveal her classical music foundation. The musical combination forms a subtle universe that is hard to place among genres, yet very exciting to listen to!
