Music called classical has always had its roots in popular music and history seems to confirm that a musician is more authentic and solid to the extent that his becoming does not uproot his essences, but values them, keeps them in mind and cultivates them . MAV DUO is a living sign of this fusion. In them, the two souls (the classic and the popular) give life to a “Colombian soul” full of creativity and beauty.
