Brasil Guitar Duo: Por el mar de las Antillas

Duo members João Luiz and Douglas Lora met in São Paulo as teenage guitar students and have been performing together for 20 years. Brasil Guitar Duo, a 2006 winner of Concert Artists Guild International Competition, has been hailed by Classical Guitar magazine for its "maturity of musicianship and technical virtuosity." Its innovative programming features a seamless blend of traditional and Brazilian works, resulting in a full global touring schedule and a growing catalogue of critically acclaimed recordings. The Duo has appeared internationally on major concert series and at festivals in Cuba, Germany, England, South Korea, Colombia, Brazil, Austria, Panama, Poland, and Bermuda.

Committed to performing new chamber music employing the guitar, the Duo joined cellists Yo-Yo Ma and Carlos Prieto in the October 2014 world premiere of El arco y la lira, a work for two cellos and two guitars by the esteemed Cuban composer Leo Brouwer.

These artists actively strive to expand the repertoire for two guitars. Appearing frequently in diverse non-traditional spaces, the Duo combines a broad repertoire of classical guitar duos with such traditional Brazilian dance forms as choro, samba, maxixe, and baião.
