VERTIGO - live at Milestone Studios, live-streamed by Panastream

Five of Cape Town’s top instrumental virtuosos come together as “Vertigo”, in a high energy instrumental showcase that will be live streamed from Milestone Studios in Cape Town on Friday 15 January.  The concert is part of the Digital Mobility Concert Series which has been made possible by ConcertsSA and its associated funders, the Royal Norwegian Embassy, SAMRO, the SAMRO Foundation and the Levedo Foundation.

Unique from the outset, the band offers a sound and talent set which makes for a breathtaking musical experience and an instrumental showcase with universal appeal.   The 5-piece is fronted by internationally celebrated flute virtuoso Carina Bruwer – known for her extreme versatility as a Classically trained turned contemporary Jazz musician and one of only a few flautist in the world to achieve the “slide guitar effect” on the flute – and musically directed by Kyle Petersen - multi-talented keyboardist and international Ambassador for Roland Keyboards.  International guitarist extraordinaire Richard Brokensha who has performed across the world to packed stadiums and intimate royalty parties alike, joins on electric and acoustic guitars, while the exceptional multi-instrumentalist and composer Nick Williams - who went pro as a mostly self-taught musician before winning the opportunity to study in Zurich and perform across the world – joins on bass.  Drummer Darren Petersen who transitioned from a child prodigy to a fully-fledged drum, percussion and sampling specialist and one of SA’s premiere and most in-demand drummers, completes the quintet in style!

The show consists of mind-blowing renditions of instrumental Jazz/ soul, pop, crossover and contemporary pieces. Highlights include Europa (Carlos Santana), Spain (Chick Corea), Special Star (Mango Groove), Kashmir (Led Zeppelin), Adagio (Albinoni mashup), and more showstoppers as well as soulful melodies.  The performance will be streamed by local livestreaming provider Panastream, as part of the Mother City Milestone series which is a digital concert series collaboration between Milestone Studios and Panastream.
