2023 marks 10 years of flute-guitar Meraki Duo. At the Royal Northern College of Music, Meera Maharaj and James Girling discovered their shared passion for chamber music, jazz, folk and contemporary works. As Royal Over-Seas League Competition finalists, Meraki recently performed at Wigmore Hall and Kings Place.

The Duo celebrates its anniversary with Brazilian folk-jazz, American songs, evocative sea music by Japanese composer Tōru Takemitsu, a tango by Piazzolla, and Dvořák’s Sonatina, from the time of his ‘New World’ Symphony.
