Multiple award-winning, Classically trained, POP-ROCK flautist Carina Bruwer is one of the most unique flute players in the world today. Praised far and wide for her phenominal technique combined with her idiosyncratic improvisation skills and soulful interpretations rarely associated with this instrument, Carina has been hailed by the media as "better at Jethro Tull than Ian himself!", and it has been said that "In Carina’s hands, the flute is far from a delicate, conservative instrument, IT’S PURE ROCK!”

Carina holds a BMus (Hons) cum laude and is also the leader and founder of Sterling EQ – the the SAMA Award-winning all-woman trio known for coining the genre "instrumental pop" through their unique take on instrumental music - has recorded on over two dozen albums, performed in 15 countries both solo and as part of Sterling, and won numerous awards for her work across the board, from purely Classical to crossover, instrumental pop and contemporary.

With her signature style, Carina breaths new life into the music she works on - be it Jazz, world, pop, rock, techno, hip hop or whatever is on the menu! With the use of her groundbreaking slide flute, she is able to make a traditionally delicate instrument sound truly rock-pop! At the same time, she offers spirited performanes of the latest billboard hits.

Her repertoire is extensive and also includes an array of instrumental Jazz, World music, modern day pop, and wedding favourites. She is also able to play any piece of music from the Classical repertoire, and always happy to source and arrange special requests from any style genre!

Carina is also well-known as a long distance swimmer, having broken numerous local and international records with her ultra marathon solo feats which includes crossing the English Channel (36km), Gibraltar Straits (16km), Messina Straits Quadruple (16km) and even False Bay (38km)! She has competed in 10 countries, breaking nearly a dozen records (national and international), winning numerous races, and enjoying significant media coverage, highlights of which includes a 10 minute feature on CNN’s African Voices in 2015, being one of Cosmopolitan’s Awesome Woman 2005, one of Glamour’s “Women We Love” 2005, and Sports Illustrated’s “Top 10 Beauties of Sport”, plus an international insert on Gillete World Sport.
