Violinist for Wedding
Violinist for Wedding – According to world renowned violinist Joshua Bell, when you play a violin piece, you are a storyteller, and you’re telling a story. That is exactly what Larah Eksteen manages to achieve.
Larah has performed as professional violinist in the entertainment industries since her student days. Hailing from a small town, her violin has taken all over the world, from graduating at the University of Pretoria, to being an orchestra member of The Cape Philharmonic, touring the Baltic and studying music production in London.
She is one of South Africa’s most progressive electro-acoustic violinists switching effortlessly between multiple-genres and collaborates on a regular basis with with Jazz, RnB, Folk, Electronic, Rock and Pop artists.
“Larah Eksteen …violin, voice and beats in one package. A superstar violinist from Johannesburg” – Angola Nel.”
Since 2010 Larah has purposefully positioned string instruments in modern genres of the 21st century and performed on seven LIVE episodes of IdolsSA alongside winners Noma Khumalo and Karabo Mogane. With her contemporary electric violin in hand, she has also shared the stage with SA favourites such as Somizi Mhlongo, Judith Sephuma, J’Something (MiCasa), Donald Moatshe and DJ Tira.
Now in 2020, Larah has returned to Cape Town and is committed to continue with the next chapter of her story. She is no stranger in town and has performed for the opening of the CTICC, at 3 Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts, for Sir Elton John, Cape Town Fashion week and top management of Naspers.
