Formed in 2013, Meraki Duo enjoys exploring the diversity of repertoire available to the flute-guitar pairing while contributing new arrangements of their own. Flautist Meera Maharaj and James both studied as undergraduates at RNCM, sharing a passion for chamber music that extends to jazz, Latin American and European folk, and works by contemporary composers. Recent performances include at King’s Place for London Guitar Festival, 1901 Arts Club, Swaledale Festival, and the Bridgewater Hall for Craig Ogden’s Guitar Weekend. They regularly perform for recital series spanning from Cumbria to Cornwall. In 2019, they advanced to the final of the Royal Over-Seas League Competition. Meraki Duo have been selected onto the International Guitar Foundation’s Young Artist Platform.
Additionally, they are Live Music Now artists and often give interactive concerts and workshops in schools and care homes across the country. They have also given concerts at Wigmore Hall in partnership with the Wigmore Learning programme.
