Hana Huljuc Graso was born in Split in 1990 to a musical family. In her hometown, she received her master’s degree in Music Theory at the Academy of Arts, and with her Little Symphony performed at the National Theater, she also received her master’s degree from the Composition department. In addition to composing, she also sings, and has toured Asia a few times as a solo vocalist at crossover pianist Maksim Mrvica’s concerts. As a songwriter, under the alias Hana Who, she writes pop songs in both English and Croatian, her latest work named Colours. She composes for various genres; classical orchestral compositions, pop songs, music for plays and musicals, and is engaged in orchestrations.
Her composition Dies Irae, performed by orchestra and choir as a part of Tonči Huljić’s “Mass of the Mediterranean” pop concert, is a combination of traditional orchestral and modern sounds. The author, who also sang solo soprano lines, considers this piece as her most complete work so far.
