■ South African bassist and composer Carlo Mombelli brings his Angels and Demons tour to The Labia Theatre, Orange Street, Cape Town, on Friday July 27, at 8pm. Mombelli will be joined by Kyle Shepherd on piano, Keenan Chas Ahrends on guitar, and Jonno Sweetman on drums. Asked about this tour, Mombelli says: “My new project is about my ongoing 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. 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.” Tickets cost R150. Call 021 424 5927 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
