ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Borth and Muñoz first crossed paths in 2006 while teaching at the prestigious Ottawa Suzuki Strings' Sound Encounters workshop. They later came together for a one-year residency at the Faena Theater during one of Faena's original live productions, which is where Ekho Duo was born.
The duo’s shared passion for music beyond the confines of classical traditions sparked a friendship despite living in different cities – Shane in Kansas City, MO, and Ben in Pittsburg, PA. Their occasional collaborations in Kansas City hinted at the creative chemistry to come.
During their residency, the duo mesmerized audiences with their innovative sound in the Quixotic-produced cabaret show, "Samsara." Borth and Muñoz seized the opportunity to rehearse and cultivate a distinctive sound that harmoniously blends classical expertise with a rock attitude. Ancient instruments came alive as they crafted a musical experience that is both energetic and elegant, with a modern twist.
