Ensemble Bio:

Chika Inoue and Matthew Lombard collaborate to bring together music from Japan and South Africa and integrate them into existing repertoire for two saxophones in various settings. Both artists have a passion for bringing music from their respective countries to audiences across the globe. With experience in genres that cross over the standard "classical" repertoire, the diversity that Inoue and Lombard bring through their experience brings a fresh approach to the concert saxophone stage.
