Two wonderful world class guitarists well deserving of keen interest from a music loving public. This musical 'pairing' is definitely a cut above. Together, as the saying goes, they make beautiful music.

Lulo Reinhardt, is the grand nephew of Django Reinhardt and has toured in the UK several times in the past 10 or so years. While Lulo has a repertoire of gypsy swing as you might expect, he has extended and developed beyond that with music from North Africa and India influencing his playing and now with Yuliya he moves towards classical music.

Yuliya Lonskaya was born in 1980 in Belarus and began her guitar journey at the local music college. She gained a diploma at the Belarus Academy of Music in Minsk and continued her studies with Prof. Andreas von Wangenheim at the Karlsruhe Musik Hochschule. Finally she took masterclasses with Costas Cotsiolis, David Russell, Carlo Marchione and Abel Carlevaro.

Yuliya has won several international guitar competitions in Poland, England, Serbia and Montenegro. In 2002, in a duo with Russian guitarist, Dimitrii Illarionov, she won the prestigious GFA guitar competition (Guitar Foundation of America). In 2006, she made her debut in the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow as soloist with the Symphonic Orchestra Novaya Rossiya
