The rarely heard combination of instruments has been drawing raves from audiences and critics wherever they perform.

Kouzmanova, a native Bulgarian, has appeared as a soloist with numerous orchestras and performed in recitals throughout Europe, Asia, Australia and South America. The winner of many international violin competitions, Kouzmanova regularly teaches different master classes all over Europe, North Africa, the United States, Asia and Australia.

Guitarist Luque plays classical and flamenco music in a Spanish romantic style, combining technical virtuosity with beautiful tone and musicianship.

She received her master's degree in Spain and then came to America where she also received a master's degree from the Juilliard School in New York City.
