The trio will feature a range of acoustic instrumentation with Steve on Nylon Flamenco Guitar, Resonator Nylon Guitar, Contralto and Mbiratar (Nylon Resonator with attached hardwood Mbira). Greg plays Nylon Flamenco Guitar, Oud (North African fretless Lute), Bouzouki and Oudtar, with ‘Beatmaster’, Ashish on Tabla (Indian Classical Drums), Darbukah (Arabic Drum) Dhol and Zarb (Iranian Drum).

They will be recording each night for an album to be released at The National Arts Festival in Grahamstown this year.

"Coda (Say ko-da), noun Music: section of a movement added at the end to clinch matters or where all significant themes come together"
With the release of their second album, "African Renaissance", the group CODA, are receiving wider recognition as a group truly representing South Africa on a global level. The track, "It's Still The Music", can be heard on many of the local radio stations.
Taking photos at live music venues, one have to consider many factors when the light conditions are not ideal. You also have to be very careful that you do not step on the performers toes.
