Two musicians, two traditions, spoken in two different dialects, united in one common musical language. In this duo the traditional element is so evident that it naturally colours all aspects of their music. Yet, everything happens in the moment. They express themselves freely and in their performance they invite the listener into their world of musical stories, discussions and thoughts. On a variety of instruments, sounds and attitudes, the listener gets to step right into the middle of an ongoing conversation. This is how it sounds when Jonas and Josefina let their instruments talk.
