Biography

Skaila Kanga (born in India) is a harpist and is Head of Harp Studies at the Royal Academy of Music, London, England. After winning a Junior Exhibition to the Royal Academy of Music for piano, she switched to harp studies at age 17. She studied with Tina Bonifacio, Sir Thomas Beecham’s harpist in the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Skaila began with the BBC Concert Orchestra, after which she went on to freelance with many London orchestras. Skaila’s solo career has included many performances of concertos and broadcasts in the realms of records, films and television. In 1977, Tommy Reilly and Skaila formed a duo for harmonica and harp which lasted 22 years. They performed in concert and on television throughout Britain, Europe and South America, recording on the Chandos Records, the label for whom Skaila also recorded all the major French chamber music repertoire with the Academy of St. Martin’s in the Fields Chamber Ensemble, as well as Mozart’s Concerto for flute and harp with Susan Milan, Richard Hickox and the City of London Sinfonia.
