Cinematica Strings is the latest project by violinist, Naomi Tagg. These musicians have performed all over the globe and have now come together in South Africa to perform your favourite pop and film favourites in one of the most loved formats, the string quartet. The arrangement is at the heart of the quartet, with these melodies masterfully woven between the four string players.
Cinematica Strings perform pop and film covers for string quartet and had an arrangement by Naomi Tagg featured on HBO’s hit TV show “The Great” in 2022.
Cinematica strings also performs as backing strings with singers and solo instrumentalists. No newcomer to the scene, Naomi’s string quartet performed as part of the opening for Celine Dion in South Africa and has performed live on London’s BBC Radio 4.
The group is perfect for wedding and corporate entertainment alike. They welcome collaborations of any kind and keep their music current and fresh with new arrangements added each month.

Cinematica’s wide range of music covers pop ballads, film classics and South African favourites. They are able to tailor their performance to suit the event, but here are a few guides to start with:
Drinks reception / Corporate event :
As made popular by the Netflix series “Bridgerton”, your favourite pop and film songs performed by a string quartet. Perfect for creating a laid-back soundtrack to your drinks reception / corporate event. Boasting a wide range of repertoire, there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy!
Wedding ceremony: (Best paired with the Drinks reception option)
Light classical background music for 15 mins before the ceremony starts. Then music during the ceremony : bridal entrance, signing of the register and exit music with the option of 1-2 requests taken. All music will be discussed and approved by Naomi, and arrangements of the songs will be made.
Collaborations + Recordings:
Cinematica is able to do bespoke arrangements of any song you might require for an event or recording. We also provide string arrangements as part of backing strings for singers and instrumentalists. We love to collaborate and would be interested in hearing your creative ideas!
