The Italian-Swiss harpist Raoul Moretti is a versatile and many-sided harpist with a very personal approach to the instrument. After the classical degree and many experiences in chamber music and symphonic Orchestras he started deep research on electro harp, a kaleidoscopic approach between composing and improvisation and using unconventional techniques. This has led him, over the years, to develop an artistic career path in search of a personal style. His many interests have spurred him to engage in different musical worlds and other forms of art.
From here projects evolve, unique, providing several opportunities to collaborate with other artists.
