harp’s tones with dynamic and captivating sonic landscapes. The audience is no longer spectators
facing an untouchable stage; surrounded by speakers, they are immersed in the very essence of the
performance.

Celebrating intimacy and the unexpected, XKTdra performs in more personal spaces. Its distinctive
and unique concentric layout establishes a direct connection between musicians, the audience, and
the sonic environment.

Ultimately, XKTdra propels the harp into the present by reinterpreting the past, creating an
innovative fusion where the contemporary reclaims its roots. Without disavowing its cultural
heritage and favoring.
