Our string quartet are collaborating with Mbira player Chartwell Dutiro and dancer Denise Rowe, exploring music from our individual heritages and attempting to meet in the middle. We're also working on a new piece by Bristol based composer Daniel Linker for quartet and mbira.
It's all part of a research project by Bath Spa University's Amanda Bayley and is being recorded by her and by film students from Bath Spa.
We have spent several days exploring the music and it's been a fascinating process. Several performances are being planned and we will up date with these as soon as we have the information.
In the meantime, here are some photos which we hope will give a flavour of what we've been up to so far.
