The duo started working together as the result of a chance meeting in the Summer of 2012 under the aegis of a mutual friend, the Brazilian

designer Cristina Carneiro Mendonca. A subsequent invitation to give a concert at her Festival of Arts, Fashion & Music at the Bolivar Hall in

London's West End and perform at The British Red Cross Brazilian Gala Ball in the Connaught Rooms Covent Garden in November 2012

initiated, focused and inspired work and the duo realised a concert program in a short space of time.

Premiere Incandescendo performance Bolivar Hall, London W1 Review Brazilian Post London 06/11/2012

"Thursday evening I was transported on an imaginary train journey through a warm, dazzling, sunlit green, lush and

remarkable country, thousands of miles away, by the sublime sounds of Emily Burridge, cellist, composer, performer

and producer, with percussionist Felix Gibbons at the Bolivar Hall in London’s Fitzrovia, as part of the Festival of the

Arts for Brazil and Ecuador".
