“An absolutely breathtaking performance…it was impossible to keep your eyes off of Lia – such control, stature, emotion…Acoustic guitarist Duffin is a facile and gifted musician. The tone of his instrument and his masterful playing were the spine of the performance, and vocalist Alejandro Mendia has a sinuous and powerful baritone voice – full of colours and dynamics, which perfectly captures the intensity of the form.”
