The Grigoryan and Tawadros family names are synonymous with Australian classical music. Guitar virtuosi, Slava and Leonard Grigoryan, join the extraordinarily talented Joseph and James Tawadros for an adventurous musical partnership that crosses musical boundaries. The exotic sounds of the oud and req' add an intriguing dimension to this eclectic program. Each a distinguished artist in his own right, this collaboration showcases the very best of Australian talent.

The Band of Brothers is not just about the coming together of two sets of talented brothers who happen to be amazing music makers - it's a celebration of music and a beautiful friendship.

The repertoire performed by the brothers is a mixture of some duo pieces by the Grigoryan and Tawadros brothers, a special arrangement of Blackbird by the Beatles and some group pieces composed by Joseph Tawadros - Lucca, Ten Ten, Freo and Sahara dispersed with a plethora of improvisation.
