Cape Town Wedding Singer and Harpist
Soul Solo was started in 2005 by Davina Mortlock, a harpist of over 30 years and accomplished singer and songwriter. The melodious sounds of her beautiful David concert harp, the only one of this make in South Africa, are both relaxing and enchanting, bringing an elegant, unforgettable and unique touch to the many events, weddings and corporate functions she performs at on a regular basis.
She has performed on the streets of Jerusalem, in a Swiss cathedral, with a church band in the USA, for charities, receptions, stork parties, launches, banquets, birthdays, cocktail parties, christenings, various corporate functions, weddings, funerals, concerts, talent shows and church services.
Davina was the national award winner of the Brides Choice Award in the Live Band/Live Music category three years in a row while the African Bridal Industry Association (ABIA) was active in South Africa.
Being a songwriter and having composed a lot of her own music on the harp, Davina will add a unique and personal touch to your event, letting the atmosphere inspire her with new melodies.
Davina usually performs solo but has performed on occasions with a piano, a string quartet, a recorder, a flute player, a saxophone, a classical singer and a full band. She recently joined up with a violinist and now offers a “harp and violin duo” option as well.
Davina also sings and has written many songs, including love songs in French and in English. The songs are very popular as items during wedding ceremonies. Davina has a repertoire of classical pieces, contemporary love songs, hymns and church music. She particularly enjoys playing Celtic music as well as her own compositions. With enough advance notice, she can learn a particular piece you might like her to play, if it is suited for the harp.
Diversity, personal touches, commitment and a music filled with a love for life is what makes Soul Solo an experience not to be easily forgotten.
