Adriana and Christine have made music performances together since 2016 and have been friends much longer. They know their deeper instincts congregate in spaces of connection, community, and openheartedness. They love enabling softness in others, challenging to let go, to play, to abandon control. Their work with Nadar ensemble is the first commission for musicians outside of their duo.
