With singer Helena Tamelová we started to work together in 2011. We both are students of Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno. Originally we established our duo because of schoolwork. Soon we decided to perform together outside the walls of Academy. Combination of guitar and singing in classical music brings many options in work with various means of expression. We choose repertoire with the right portion of interpretative challenges but attractive for the audience equally.
