Mal-O-Dua
Mal-O-Dua
"French guitar sorcery”
What happened when Django Reinhardt met Merle Travis? A new style of acoustic swing was born!! Well…actually that never did really happen. However, that is the blending of styles that Mal-O-Dua is built on. The duo pulls from a wide range of sources including western swing, Gypsy jazz, Kentucky finger picking, Parisian waltz, early French pop, Hawaiian slack key, and the American standards songbook to name a few. These styles are blended to create a fresh new sound.
