SIMPLY STRINGS is a Cape Town based string trio consisting of violin (Vicente Espi), viola (Annemi Phillips) and cello (Ariella Caira). The trio is often joined by another violinist or double bass to form a string quartet. Their music displays their classically-trained background mixed with their love for contemporary styles as is evident in the genres they play.
Everything from Baroque, Jazz, Pop and Rock – nothing is too wild for them to play!
Between them they have obtained degrees from the most prestigious music colleges in the world and played in the best orchestras and groups Cape Town has to offer.
While Annemi keeps herself busy with arranging new music for the group, Ariella also offers Solo Electric Cello for corporates and weddings. When Vicente is not playing his violin, he spends his time in his studio as a sound engineer, mixing, producing and writing music for his electronic band ANIMA!
