I am completely inspired by the raw, honest and earthy music by Hannaka.
A rich and deep resonance that draws you in and makes you feel like exploding with movement meditation and dance. Love it!
You can catch Hannaka playing at the Baby Grand in West End, Brisbane

Ay-Ya-Ha is the first single release of Hannaka's forthcoming album, 'To Eat the Sun.' This long awaited track captures the sharp inhale we make before taking a plunge, hurling ourselves into new horizons, discovering the choices and the path that is right for us. We all make leaps of faith throughout our lives, we are all dared to really live at some point, we all jump off that waterfall. Hannaka wrote this song during a particular summer of searching out waterfalls, the exhilaration and freedom of making the leaps on the Sunshine coast of Australia. This song is her declaration of living in power, freedom and intention, honouring the process that it takes to get there. Hannaka is an impetuous, diverse, free and brave artist. Her roots are Australian, but her scope is universal. To see her perform is to beckon at your heart, where you really are. She will open up herself, look you in the eye and ask you to trust her because she is trusting you. Her songs are full of the raw, are representations of her connection to land and sea, are the navigation of hope and the declaration of FREEDOM. Making art from this conviction, Hannaka finished her Bachelor of Music in vocal Jazz in 2014. Known for her shapeshifter qualities, she is a singer/songwriter, composer, sound-artist, poet, graphic designer, installation and performance artist, curator and painter. Deftly employing a servitude to art that infects feeling into her audiences. She transmutes the means of that communication into whatever form is most poignant, with its most insistent voice, be it in music, visual arts or movement. Since graduating, she set out on a journey she thought would be 3 months, now has turned into 2 years travelling the world and playing music. Late 2014, Hannaka released two EPs, The Colour of War and Ereshkigal. Recently on the tail-end of recording a debut album, amidst giving birth to her first child, Hannaka released Ay-Ya-Ha, the first single to her new album 'To Eat the Sun,' in September 2018. Hannaka has a unique passion and courage to explore realms through her work that are the ‘silenced’ discourses of our existence, drawing on themes of wildness, madness, transcendence, awe, loss and unbridled sorrow and feeling. She has an inquiry that is unrelenting and a fragility that combines talent with unbridled vulnerability.
