AnAlex Duo balances the refinement of classical music while zigzagging through hip-hop, blues, flamenco, bollywood, and rock n' roll. The Duo surprises you with an unexpected instrumentation filled with vibrant shades, that are each dazzling on their own, but simply breathtaking when joined together. Daring these two instruments to have a conversation, AnAlex Duo commissions electrifying works, creating an ice-breaker for this unusual collaboration.

Their musical dynamism has carried the members of AnAlex Duo to venues such as Alice Tully Hall, Symphony Space, Instituto Cervantes NY, Merkin Concert Hall, Spectrum and Le Poisson Rouge. They have performed with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the Kronos Quartet, CityMusic Cleveland Chamber Orchestra, The Juilliard New Music Ensemble, Windscape, and Imani Winds.

With each performance, audiences will be swept into an exciting collision of sound worlds and cultures; each piece is a fresh musical conversation. AnAlex Duo invites you to experience their infectious energy and charismatic presence in their debut concert on March 26th at The National Opera Center in New York City.
