My guests today are a husband and wife duo Daniel and Marla Nistico. They form a flute and guitar duo called Duo Vela.
Duo Vela performs enchanting music from across the seas, giving audiences a taste of the sounds, rhythms and cultures of different lands. Formed in 2014, the duo has brought their exciting programs to venues in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and China.
We talk about their story, current tour and repertoire including new works they are commissioning and some of the strategies they use to promote themselves and find new opportunities.
Pavane pour une infante défunte – Ravel from Duo Vela’s CD Soiree d’Hiver
Histoire du Tango, iii Nightclub 1960 – Astor Piazzolla performed by Duo Vela Live in Virginia.
