Carlo Mombelli ‘Angels and Demons’ Tour



In association with Concerts SA, South African bassist and composer Carlo Mombelli presents his Angels and Demons tour.

Music extraordinaire Mombelli is joined by an impressive trio of jazz luminaries: Kyle Shepherd on piano, Keenan Chas Ahrends on guitar, and Jonno Sweetman on drums.

The accomplished quartet will play two shows at Johannesburg’s premiere jazz club, The Orbit, before heading to the Western Cape for several shows in Cape Town, Kalk Bay and Stellenbosch.

I Pressed My Spine To The Ground, Mombelli’s latest recording was chosen by the BBC 3 late junction as one of their top 12 picks for 2016 played on the BBC late junction evening radio, London.

Asked about this tour, Mombelli says: “My new project is about my on-going search to create works of beauty between my Angels and Demons, works that explode out of these two opposites. It is an exploration of the positives and negatives of everything. Striving for beauty in my art is my life-long quest and I put my projects together for this end.”

“This is the next period of my art in my compositional and performance career. I want to record the band at the end very soon, so to have the opportunity to perform as many times as possible in a short space of time will solidify the music and prepare us for the recording”, Mombelli says.

Mombelli’s purpose with the project is to tell a story. “It is a story. At the end of a performance, the audience raptures into applause or is in dead silence because the energy of the concept of the band is spiritual. I am always trying to find the spiritual element in music.”

Carlo Mombelli ‘Angels and Demons’ Tour is supported by Concerts SA through the Music Mobility Fund, a funding mechanism which offers opportunities for South African musicians to undertake live music tours.
