Meraki Duo 

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, Swaledale Festival, Manchester Cathedral, 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 2019/20. 

 

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.

"A concert full of variety and colour. Displaying a fine rapport, [they] blended beautifully and gave vibrant and masterly performances.”

-  review, All Saints' Parish Church, Hertford

"Truly an outstanding concert. The mastery of their instruments is a given, their musicianship is exceptional. What is astonishing is their mutual understanding which feels tantamount to a deep and combined intuition so that we are listening to one remarkable and completely enchanting instrument. The experience is breathtaking, beautiful and inspiring."

-  Bryan Fox, concert director (Emmanuel Church, Didsbury)
