Viola da Samba
Viola da Samba is an ensemble creating a bridge between Renaissance music and Brazilian music. Comprised of voice, viola da gamba and clavichord, this group uses the pure sounds of early instruments to revive the past while embodying the rich and vivacious harmonies and rhythms of samba and bossa nova.

Cantar alla Viola
Cantar alla Viola is the art of accompanying the voice with the Viola da Gamba. It is a very special and quite rare combination. This largely forgotten technique of using a bowed instrument to accompany the voice has inspired this duo for 10 years.
