The Zāki Duo are a Sydney-based violin and guitar ensemble who play an eclectic mix of World, classical and popular music. They have performed across Sydney and surrounding regions in a wide range of venues and settings such as home-concerts, weddings, birthday parties, restaurants, and galleries. They are available for bookings - so if you'd like them to perform at your next special event, please get in touch!
Isabel and Ariel both studied classical music at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and have had multifaceted careers since graduating. In forming the Zāki Duo, they wanted to share their love of music from different places and cultures, inspired by many trips abroad, and to bring to the "events space" something a bit different to your standard band or string group.
They set out arranging pieces from around the World, timeless pop songs and classical works, resulting in a diverse and quirky repertoire. Their performances traverse everything from music icons like Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, to jazz legends like George Gershwin and Django Reinhardt, to classical masters like Bach and Debussy, to film music and interesting selections of Persian, Brazilian and Spanish music, and more.
