It is a meeting of two experienced figures from the Czech music scene. The musical journeys of Ridina and Petr have been intertwining for almost 20 years - they first met in jazz formations, then they spent several years together in Floex, an internationally recognised project. In 2016, after several years of touring together, they have released a long-awaited album of their compositions.

“Playing in this chamber form is an intense experience. It brings us the rigid constraints of the given instrumental form, but at the same time a great deal of freedom. There´s a fragility and strength, because when there are only two instruments, they can make a very close connection. It is an intense journey to the sheer joy of sound.”
