Dalbergia Duo (Anna Rutkowska & Julianna Siedler Smuga) is a unique female marimba/percussion duo from Poland, whose performances are filled with a mixture of sensitivity and elemental women's power.
These two marimba ladies put together on stage create multitude of colours and picturesque musical landscapes. Dalbergia Duo perform a variety of musical styles and genres including both pieces already written by great world known composers of classical and contemporary music, and those commissioned by the Duo. They actively cooperate with composers of the young generation, building new sonic vocabulary for marimbas. They also give new life to the “classics” written for other instruments inter alia piano compositions by Polish masters Karol Szymanowski or Ignacy Jan Paderewski. There are no performing boundaries for Dalbergia Duo. Apart from the classical repertoire the artists deal with contemporary performative compositions with audio-visual layers, as well as theatrical works.
