” She uses bowed acoustic bass, harmonium, bodhrán and charangon to generate an otherworldly ambience.
Peia sings like a stringed instrument, creating countermelodies that dance through the arrangements with an air of blissful sorrow”
–Downbeat Magazine

To All Early Waking Grievers

Peia Luzzi is an American born song collector, writer, teacher and multi-instrumentalist based in the mountains of Appalachia.
Like water from a deep well, she draws inspiration from her ancestral roots of Celtic and Old World European folk music. With a voice that dances nimbly from Child Ballads and 17th C. Irish laments, to Scottish Waulking Songs, and Bulgarian mountain calls, she has traveled & studied extensively over the past 12 years to reconnect with her own ancestral song tradition. With three studio albums to date and international touring since 2014, Peia has acquired a dedicated and diverse following around the globe.

“Moving seamlessly from Hungarian lullaby to Scottish reel, Peruvian proverb and poetic originals, Peia constructs a prayer-like cycle of songs that often permeate with hushed vocals and restrained melodies before adding grooves that edify and further mesmerize.”
