We would like to invite you to embark upon a journey from Mexico to Tierra del Fuego, where you will be seduced by instruments like the Paraguayan harp and classic guitar, playing authentic-popular and modern arragements from South America. Our repertoires include owncompositions , adaptations of classical and jazz works and solo performances.
We performed in numerous concerts and International harp and guitar festivals among others in the "World Harp Congress" in Amsterdam, , “Guitarras del Mundo” in Argentina, “European Harp symposium” in Wales, the “Harp Festival” in Arles (France), the “Latin-American Harp Festival” in México, “Harp Festival Buenos Aires” in Argentina, the “Paraguayan Harp Festival Tacuareé” in Paraguay, “Harfentreffen Richterswil” in Switzerland, “Seduced by Harp” in Belgium, “Eurofestival Zupfmusik” in Germany, “International Folk Music Festivals” in Brazil and Cuba, also other concerts in Serbia, Romania, Moldavia, Hungary, Netherlands and USA. In our adopted country Switzerland we have been acting duo at the Tangowoche Zurich, the Landesmuseum Zürich (State Museum of Zurich) among others.

Tango, South American Folklore, our own compositions, traditional musical interpretations, others with subtle chamber type and more modern arrangements. This CD expresses a varied array of musical hues, representing us at this time. It is the onset of our path with its Latin American roots towards the search for our own music, the mark of what we are today, ever changing as always. Here we come across an atypical repertoire for the Paraguayan folkloric harp, since the tonal limitations of this instrument involves a complicated technique with keys to create the chromatisms and modulations heard here. It is a pleasure for us as a Duo, to make our first CD after being together for four years. We wish to thank everyone who has given us the incentive to do so. RAMOS-SCHNEIDER DUO, November 2004.
