Carlo Mombelli: Angels and Demons

The Orbit Jazz Club
Fri 16 - Sat 17 November   /   R160

“I don’t force composition, I wait for composition to arrive naturally. My compositions come from stories and events, emotions, and my environment which is South Africa. They evolve from my need to reach beyond my edge of wrong and search for the beauty between my angels and demons.” – Carlo Mombelli

Mombelli’s music has been described in the press as:

“Once in a while an artist comes along who produces music unlike anything you've heard. Avant-garde bass-focused jazz composition has rarely sounded so gorgeous.” - Bass Player Magazine (USA)

“His music is unusually and unexpectedly fresh.” - Paris Jazz Man Magazine, (FRANCE)

“Carlo Mombelli’s music is that of a quintessential Prisoner of Strange. It’s visionary, emotional and experimental, in a society that doesn’t applaud artistry and integrity. His music sits on the cusp of sanity, where madness and brilliance share space, where true art resides. Mombelli has found in his music the expressive soul of the developing world mixed with the technical profundity of the classical world.” - The Sunday Independent
