The New Project feat. Carlo Mombelli @ Youngblood Africa
In association with Concerts SA, pianist Coila-Leah Enderstein and percussionist Dylan Tabisher present the national tour of The New Project, an improvised music collaboration with bassist Carlo Mombelli. Youngblood Africa will be hosting this unique ensemble for a performance on 30 March 2019 at 19:30.
The New Project is a music improvisation initiative formed by pianist Coila-Leah Enderstein and percussionist Dylan Tabisher in 2018. The project aims to foster collaborations between various musicians, merging diverse backgrounds into an 'instant-compositional' performance. The focus is to push the boundaries of artistic intuition and the concept of musical style in an effort to create a unique experience for performers and listeners alike.
Coila-Leah completed her BMus (Hons) at the University of Cape Town in 2014 and she has since produced a number of interdisciplinary performance projects in South Africa, Namibia and The Netherlands. In 2018 she released her first classical album with flutist Sally Minter, “Avanti Live in Concert.” Coila-Leah is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Sound Studies and Sonic Arts at the University of the Arts, Berlin.
Dylan received his Master’s degree in Percussion Performance at Stellenbosch University in 2015 and in 2016 was selected as the overall winner of the SAMRO Overseas Scholarship Competition. Thereafter he studied with Keiko Abe in Japan, regarded as one of the most important marimbists in the world.
Dr. Carlo Mombelli requires no introduction. One of South Africa's most prolific composer/performers, Professor at the University of Witwatersrand, he has produced numerous critically acclaimed albums, the most recent being Angels and Demons featuring Kyle Shepherd, Keenan Ahrends and Jonno Sweetman.
The New Project 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.
