Cape Town audiences are in for a treat when SAMA-winning instrumental pop group Sterling EQ brings their eclectic mix of instrumental showstoppers and exquisite melodies to The Baxter Theatre on 24 March.
Known for changing the face of instrumental music in South Africa, the all-woman four-piece fuses diverse musical styles such as Classical, Kwaito, Pop, Rock and World, into their own distinctive and contemporary sound which is complemented by their energetic, visually arresting live performance. Their award-winning live show contains a collection of Pop-classic showpieces including Toccata Rock, Jazz-inspired instrumentals like Chic Corea’s Spain, South African hits like Mbube, Nkalakatha, and even Mannetjie Roux, as well as originals including their hit song (and debut album title track) Nova, which was also made into a Hollywood-style music video which enjoys local and international airplay. Other highlights include a tribute to pop violinist Vanessa Mae, a “sterling” version of the Mission Impossible theme, and a breathtaking instrumental version of the Italian love song, Caruso.
Sterling EQ LIVE at The Baxter Theatre on 24 March at 20:00 is a One night Only affair not to be missed! Tickets cost R100 (concessions available for students, pensioners and group bookings), and can be booked through Computicket.
