Friends since childhood, Canadian born violinists, Jonathan Chan and Jan Bislin, formed Momento in 2013. Having studied with the same professor during their teenage years, Jon and Jan garnered countless classical music awards and accolades throughout their young lives, and went on to receive their Masters in Performance from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Fusing their classical training with contemporary influences, the multi-instrumentalists have evolved their music and live shows by incorporating electronic elements and supporting instruments. Performing both originals and carefully crafted covers of popular classics, Momento push the boundaries of the violin and captivate audiences with their unique sound. Having built a strong YouTube following, Jon and Jan have performed all over the UK and the world, including the U.S.A., Canada, France, Germany and the Czech Republic. The duo were also invited to play at the wedding of Geri Halliwell and Christian Horner in 2015, have performed frequently at Sofar Sounds London gigs, and worked alongside Ronnie Scotts musicians at the Old Vic Theatre’s inaugural Variety Night show and the Summer Gala, sharing the stage with Tim Minchin, Dynamo, Gary Barlow, Il Volo and other prominent artists.
