Kristín Anna

Kristín Anna is an icelandic musician and performing artist. She began her musical career in her teens with the band Múm and released three albums with the band. The band toured extensively with Kristín Anna signing and playing accordion, saw, banjo, bass and various keys. In 2006, she left the band and moved to New York where she appeared solo for the first time as Kría Brekkan, performing a bundle of piano songs she had composed by herself. Since then, she has continued to write and perform her music on occasions.

In 2015, Ragnar Kjartansson, Ingibjörg Sigurjónsdóttir and Kjartan Sveinsson got her into the studio to get some of these songs recorded. A few years later in spring 2019, Kristín Anna released “I Must Be The Devil” on their label Bel-Air Glamour via Vinyl Factory.

Kristín Anna is a frequent collaborator of Ragnar Kjartansson and performs in many of his most recognized art pieces and installations. Most recently she performed and wrote the music in the Kjartansson installation, “Death Is Elsewhere,” that premiered at The MET in New York City along with her twin sister Gyða, and Aaron and Bryce Dessner, from the Grammy-award winning group The National.
