Andrea's performance was magical. My wife and I laid on a bed while we were taken on a wonderful musical ride accompanied by her great storytelling in between. The instrument, the sounds it created immediately relaxed our bodies and minds. It's an immersive experience that is not to be missed in Ojai. We're very thankful for Andrea's generosity in sharing her experiences and her craft with us. Highly recommended!

You have to experience it! Sounds more like a cello than a harp but Andrea explains all that and it’s so educational. You won’t regret it!

Andrea is an incredible artist, musician, and dancer. We drove 3 hours for her performance and it was SO worth it. It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen or heard. I’ve waited a year to listen to live music (due to the pandemic), and this was just such a beautiful way of celebrating after we got vaccinated. HIGHLY recommend. An unforgettable experience

An amazing musical experience- Andrea immersed us completely in her music. We “metamorphosized” like a cocoon into a Sonic Butterfly! It was magical and enchanting! Loved every minute
