Pete is from the Yelding family, a tribe rooted in Circus history and before that, travelling fairs. Currently based in S.E. LDN, he writes songs, improvises and notates for others. His main instruments are Cello, Voice and Sitar. His compositions range from solo performances to interdisciplinary collaborations. He grew up playing Cello in Classical ensembles, in Rock&Pop bands, with Mandinka Griots and Gnawa musicians. He studied Composition at Birmingham Conservatoire, where he also began his training in Hindustani music on Sitar under Clem Alford. Recently, Pete spent time developing his Cello technique with Nyanyeru player, Juldeh Camara as part of a Masters in Creative Practice at Goldsmiths. He is due to release the new album, F-NM-NL-G – a collaboration with his friend Anna Bahow for cello, voices & beats – on vinyl this summer.
