They are recognised worldwide and have performed in some of the world’s most prestigious venues with celebrated artists such as Roy Ayers, Bela Fleck, Richard Bona, Zakir Hussain, John Abercrombie, John Patitucci, Jack DeJohnette, the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Joey DeFrancesco, Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Sultan Khan, the Academy of Ancient Music, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Camerata Salzburg to name a few. They have recorded 13 albums and been nominated a record 15 times in the ARIA Awards, winning a hat-trick in 2012, 2013 abd 2014.
Together they perform the original music of Joseph Tawadros. Josephs Middle Eastern flavoured compositions constantly push the boundaries of melody and metre and are a rare combination of highly emotional music intertwined with boundless energy. True musicianship of the highest degree.
See them in an intimate and rare duo concert celebrating their new CD ‘Live at Abbey Road’ which they recorded at the iconic studio in London earlier this year.
