Join us for two modern guitar virtuosos on this week's episode, Fareed Haque and Goran Ivanovic. The duo released a pair of albums in the 2000's to critical acclaim, but busy schedules and other musical endevours put their playing together on hiatus. That hiatus came to an end this year with the duo's new album IndoBalkan.
In IndoBalkan, Haque and Ivanovic draw from their cultural roots to create a unique blend of world music, jazz, and classical. We talked with the guitarists about their backgrounds, influences, and reforming of the duo. They also performed some special live improvs for us, recorded from the artists' homes.
