Soloists' Biographies

Hanna Marti

Hanna Marti was born in Basel and grew up at the southern end of the Swiss Jura mountains. When she was fifteen years old she played electric guitar in various rock bands and wrote songs for her own group.

She discovered singing and took voice lessons with Dorothea Galli (Zürich). After becoming interested in early music, she studied at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel. During those years Hanna Marti also became acquainted with the lute – studying with Peter Croton – and discovered the medieval harp.

In 2015 she completed a Masters Diploma (voice) at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis as a student of Evelyn Tubb. Since finishing her studies Hanna Marti has focused most of her artistic work on medieval song.

She is a new member to Sequentia, performing with the ensemble since September 2015. As a member of the women's vocal ensemble Peregrina she has performed and recorded in Europe, most notably in performances of Hildegard von Bingen's Ordo Virtutum, co-directing the project and performing the role of Anima. In her own ensemble Moirai, (collaborating with American flautist Mara Winter) she is currently working on musical reconstructions of the Icelandic poetic Edda. Hanna Marti's most recent solo project is a musical recitation and reconstruction of stories in Ovid's Metamorphoses, sung in Latin and accompanied on a 12th century harp.
