Adele's harp is unique, modern and innovative: an azure blue acoustic-electric pedal harp made in France by Camac. It's a double-faceted instrument--traditional acoustic harp and amplified electric harp with special effects on Adele's sound system.
"As a teenager, I came across a newspaper article, "Harpist on Horseback" about a girl who loved horses and harp. As soon as I saw the illustration, I knew I just had to play the harp. Over the years, I was lucky enough to work with world-famous harpists Phyllis Schlomovitz and Paul Hurst who both inspired me to play my favorite music--popular, movie themes, musicals, and nature pieces."
