One of the most unique flute players in the world today, Carina Bruwer is praised far and wide for her phenominal technique combined with her idiosyncratic improvisation skills and soulful interpretations rarely associated with this instrument. In CNN's words: "In Carina’s hands, the flute is far from a delicate, conservative instrument, IT’S PURE ROCK!”
Carina, who holds a BMus (Hons) cum laude and is also the leader and founder of award-winning instrumental-pop band Sterling EQ - has recorded on over a dozen albums, performed in 15 countries both solo and as part of Sterling, and won numerous awards for her work across the board, from purely Classical to crossover, instrumental pop and contemporary. With her signature style, Carina breaths new life into iconic songs such as Europa (Santana), While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Beatles), Fragile (Sting), Feeling Good (Nina Simone), and many more – she draws her inspiration from songs where the melody is independently able to convey the mood of the song, and she takes it one step further with her passionate and virtuosic playing.
