Sienná is a freestyle electronica-club-jazz artist from Kyoto, Japan who is based in Norway. She is a componist, keyboardist & vocalist who was discovered by ABON - a genuine multi-talent and a long-time collaborator of Norwegian guitar maestro RONNI LE TEKRO (TNT, RYPDAL & TEKRO etc.)
A PURE LAND is her 2nd release, and the 1st full album, which is a compilation of freestyle electronica-based nu-jazz on clubbing grooves where her Japanese background & her favorite European style of electronic music are successfully blended in an untraditional way. Sienná celebrates the UK launch of this album with the premiere live appearance on Monday 17th November at Bar Music Hall, and on Tuesday 18th November at Chinawhite in London.

Her first music video "Dance of the White Rhythms\" was created and produced by Croatian art-vidual directors VJERAN CENGIC, BRANKA RADONIC & PREDRAG ARSOVSKI from Zagreb.
“A richly-textured bed of melodic layers, freeform electronica and jazzy flourishes which become the deepest house in the galaxy when the groove kicks in, as on the lovely \"Be Accessed\", \"Dance of the Whote Rhythms\" floats along on with avant jazz layers before the beats spin it into another lustrous sonic bed while the dense electronic layers take over on \"From the Distance of Memories\", drifting down into an ethereal ambient drone on \"The Spring Of Kyoto\". Words doesn\'t really do this gorgeous CD much justice anyway: it has to be heard and felt”
Kris Needs - Update Magazine (London, UK)
"It's interesting how the music highlights various meeting points between electronica, club-music and jazz-inspired elements”
Erik Steinskog -
Bergens Tidende (Bergen, Norway)
“Dreamy, atmospheric, and laced with synthy basslines, beats and interesting vocal samples.”
EMusician Xtra, (New York, USA)
“Sleek, atmospheric and hectic like Underworld”
