South Africa's first string and multi-instrumental music collective is Urban Strings. Urban Strings was founded in 2016 by fourteen skilled and diverse South African musicians.
The varied group, led by vocalist, violinist, and multi-disciplinary creative Larah Eksteen, emanates a distinct sound that creates a genuine environment in live performances.
The pool of excellent professional electric and acoustic string section members includes vocalists, violinists, viola players, cellists, double bassists, two electric harpists, a pianist, and guitarist.
All members are industry specialists who work on a personal level with a variety of local and international artists. This generates mobility in the collective's sound and performance, allowing for modern and original production.
