The Concentrates – bio

The Concentrates

The Concentrates was founded by violinist Tylana Renga Enomoto and cellist Peter Jacobson in 2009. As a duet they would busk on the streets for fun and to make extra money when needed. They would perform music from many genres, including (but not limited to) songs by David Bowie, J. Dilla, Astor Piazzolla, Neil Young, W.A Mozart, Mulatu Astatke and Ramon Ayala. Shortly after, they began writing and recording their own music while incorporating drums/percussion and other instruments. In December 2013 they released their first album entitled “RawBits” (available on featuring these collaborations. Currently, the Concentrates joined by the incomparable William Logan on drums, performs as a trio (violin, cello, drums) and plays mostly original music. Their sound is a mix of classical, groove, experimental and improvisational elements inspired by the notion that we are all connected to something far greater than just ourselves.
