Limelight Magazine review of Cyborg Pianist: “Cyborg Pianist was slick and incredibly fun. Kanga is a dynamic and versatile pianist, bringing both virtuosity and a sense of play to his performances, deftly juggling the technical and dramatic requirements of the diverse works… a fascinating exploration of piano, theatre and technology.” – read more here.

ArtsHub review of Perth performance: “Zubin Kanga continues with recitals in Melbourne and Sydney and deserves a far larger audience that would, as we did, appreciate the dexterity, the humour and the intelligence that is applied to creating such a performance as Cyborg Pianist with seamless integration of technology and brilliant musicianship.  These compositions are a true extension of the capabilities of the pianist in an exciting dynamic way. Get out to see him next time he performs.” (4.5 stars out of 5) – full review here.
