Pete Yelding


Pete is currently based in S.E. LDN. He writes songs, improvises and notates for others. His main instruments are Cello, Voice and Sitar. His practice is defined by participation in numerous musical spaces. 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 musicking on Sitar. He recently spent time developing his Cello technique with Nyanyeru player, Juldeh Camara as part of his Masters  in Creative Practice at Goldsmiths. Pete has released a number of recordings and performs regularly. His compositions range from solo performances to interdisciplinary collaborations. Reframing and projecting the histories and behaviours that flow through his practice is important to him. He wants to communicate with the diverging modernities that he feels offer sustainable hope for the future.
