Their concerts of traditional flamenco have captivated audiences not only
in parts of the world where flamenco music has its roots - India, the Middle
East and Europe, but have taken Marta and Richard as singer and guitarist
to countries not usually associated with flamenco, such as Albania and Belize.
Flamenco in Canada too is increasingly popular, and while Marta and Richard
normally appear as a flamenco duo, they at times accompany dancers. Both
from musical backgrounds, they were married in 1989, began to perform
together soon afterwards, and now live in Ontario.
Festivals in which they have performed include the Northern Flamenco
Festival, St. Petersburg, Russia; International Guitar Festival, Bute, Scotland;
film festival SimFest, Tirgu Mures, Romania; Festival of Art and Music,
Brasov, Romania; Multi-cultural Festival, Berat, Albania; Inter-cultural
Festival, Budapest, Hungary; Hudson Music Festival, Quebec; Barrie
Rhythmfest, Ontario. They received first prize in the solo/duo category at
Upper Clements Park Music Festival in Nova Scotia.
