Press Release

Composer and multi-disciplinary artist Klein presents her first PENTATONE album Harmattan, described by Fred Moten as “a soundtrack of epic revolt against beginnings and ends”, which expands our notions of what classical music means today.

Harmattan is a personal journey from childhood to now, titled after the West African season. Starting with jazz-inspired piano improvisations, the album gradually gains in ambient breadth, transforming classical musical inspirations into Klein’s unique sound universe. While the album's foundations stand resolutely with a deep reverence to grime, R&B and drone.
