Markéta and Eduardo first met on the festival Kytara napříč žánry (Guitar across genres) 2018 in Prague, where they both performed. Since that time they met more times and exchanged their musical knowledge. That’s how the idea of a public performance was born, the premiere will take place in Autumn 2020.
