Sol y Luna Guitar Duo to return to Los Alamos

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Tito Rios and Petra Babankova of Sol y Luna Guitar Duo unveiled an original composition during their Guitar and Gateaux concert last year. This year, they are back in the guitar series with more original music.

Sol y Luna will be showing off their composing skills during the first Guitar and Gateaux show of the season, which will be held from 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday at Fuller Lodge. The Los Alamos Arts Council (LAAC) is sponsoring the show.

Rios said they are looking forward to this show, after their successful performance last year.

“We were really well received – a warm welcome that we felt from the folks who came to see us,” he said.

Thursday, the program will be divided into three categories, Rios said, there will be original compositions, pieces that the duo were recorded and performed last year, and new pieces that are not original but “beautiful.”

While Babankova has written compositions, Rios writes most of the pieces for the duo.

In describing his work, Rios said, “I believe it’s a result of the music I enjoy listening to, it’s varied.”

He explained everything from Stravinsky to Radio Head is his music collection.

Additionally, the guitar music he creates is not a-tonal; it’s mainly tonal.
