About the Artists

Lina Bellard 

A musician from Brittany, France, harpist and singer, Lina Bellard reinvests in her work, the influences of three other cultural areas. The South India where she spent her childhood probably made her aware of the specific riches of modal music. She then discovered in the Poitou of her adolescence the strength of traditional dances. The Périgord, where her family is from, is the third part of her cultural heritage that she invests in. In 2011, she trained under the artistic direction of singer Erik Marchand, then obtained a fellowship grant allowing her to follow the musical education and personalized artistic advice of Titi Robin.
