Yara is a producer, writer and voice artist who focusses on readings with music. She believes that words and music naturally flow into one another, above one another and side by side, creating landscapes of sounds. If you listen closely, Shakespeare’s sonnets are surrounded by jazz trumpet, piano and drums. With this concept, since 2016, together with the Berlin jazz musician Christian Meyers, Yara has created a reading project: ‘Word Music Sound Places’, resulting in conceptual pieces using layers of voice and sound.
