About DJ Strings...
Llinos and Kotono are gifted, enthusiastic and creative young musicians whose compelling performances, recordings and arrangements mean they're always in demand! They regularly play with artists such as Gorillaz, Michael Bublé, John Legend, JLS and P. Diddy. Their work has featured on recordings by artists such as Kasabian, Adele and Kanye West, and they also create original string arrangements for artists such as Single Parents and Jets and Snakes.
They met when they were studying at the Royal Academy of Music, and have been working together since they graduated, building up a reputation for incendiary live performances and original arrangements with acclaimed artists such as Simply Red and Mark Ronson. Working with cutting-edge dance musicians and DJs meant that they started to combine dance music with their classical background - and a collaboration with DJ Benji B inspired them to create DJ Strings.
Their previous clients include Coca Cola, BBC Radio One, RedBull, Selfridges and John Lewis and they have played at venues such as Cargo, The Kingly Club, Studio Valbonne, Kensington Roof Gardens, The Jazz Café, London Eye, Claridges, The Dorchester and Tate Britain. They have also performed at many corporate events and weddings, where their combination of gentle classical serenades and party hits has delighted guests. As well as giving private performances the girls regularly perform at public events, such as Glastonbury, The O2 Wireless Festival and Cochella, and have been featured on BBC Radio1 and Later With David Letterman, among a host of others!
Members of DJ Strings have performed with: Adele, Benji B, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Damon Albarn, Sir Elton John, The Feeling, Gorillaz, Mark Ronson, Michael Bublé, Paul Weller, P. Diddy, Take That.
