Artist Info


Enjoy the ultra-virtuosic, hghly entertaining and extraordinary sounds of the multi award-winning CH2 - unplugged and unequaled!

A very prominent part of CH2’s passion and effort is a new one-of-a-kind form of corporate theatre called “Discover your Music”. Here, CH2 teams up with world-renowned writer, philosopher and industrial psychologist, Jaco Boettger, to bring companies (and many other non-profit organisations / groups) a unique and truly empowering experience, on the road to becoming “future fit”. In the 9 years since its inception, the session was delivered all over our country and elsewhere in Africa, to a large number of clients including British American Tobacco (BAT), Distell, Sanlam, TAAG (Angolan Air), Old Mutual, FNB Namibia, 4th Dimension and Capitec. “Discover your Music” sums up what CH2 passionately believes in and stands for.

Career Highlights

  • CH2 has had two very successful USA trips, after performing at the 2011 Lee Ritenour Six String Theory International Guitar Competition, World Finals in Bigfork, Montana. CH2 performed in Connecticut, Montana and dropped by New York. This competition is like a “world idols” for guitar players. Their competitors were from Italy, U.K., Mexico, Ireland, and U.S.A. and they won the World Classical / Flamenco category in August 2011. 
  • CH2 also entered the Grammys for the third time running in 2013, and are proud members of the Grammy Foundation. 
  • The duo has collaborated with a number of artists over the last couple of years, including collaboration album with one of South Africa’s most loved and internationally recognized instrumental groups – The Soweto String Quartet. A new genre evolved from this collaboration that is now referred to as “African Latin”. That album received a “Rapport VONK” award in 2008. Other notable collaborations include Coenie de Villiers, and Nianell (both on the latest album), Riaan van Rensburg, Rocco de Villiers, Melissa van der Spuy, Matthys Maree and Lloyd Cele (of SA Idols fame). 
  • In the stage production that also carries the name of their album, PING, CH2 and multi-award winning actress/director, Lizz Meiring, combine the elements of musical comedy, theatre and satire in a comical fine art cabaret. The production debuted at the Centurion Theatre in May 2012. 
  • They were also part of the “Afri-Spaans” production in 2011 (directed by Sandra Prinsloo) with Steve Hofmeyr, Martha Gomez (Colombia), Anna Davel and other world-class musicians.
