Maria Mombelli

Maria Mombelli,a young South African composer has put together a group with the experienced musicians, Carlo Mombelli on bass, Vid Gobac on drums, and Janus van der Merwe on saxophone, called “Maria Mombelli and the Bellibuttons”.

With Maria on Keyboards, her music is a fusion of styles, influenced by Portishead and RadioHead. The band has a strong groove element with infectious drum rhythms supported by melodic bass lines and jazz inspired saxophone over Maria’s trancelike piano ostinato riffs.
