The duo of Sergio Fabian Lavia and Dilene Ferraz is characterized by energy and inventive freshness, we are in the presence of true virtuosos, multi-instrumentalists from years of study, who have made technical perfection an expressive purpose; the two gave birth to a meeting of cultures with extraordinary potential and very strong symbolic combination
Ferraz is an expressive and sensual singer, endowed with a musicality full of expressive shadows. Lavia has a remarkable solo stature and knows how to accompany with sober finesse
Two artists who, mixing Argentine suggestions with Brazilian warmth, are able to offer technical music that is enjoyable and spectacular at the same time
They are two extraordinary artists: they have been able to merge and synthesize, in a commendable way, the different musical languages obtaining an excellent “unicum”, full of pathos
