With a ship and the stars to guide, let Duo Vela transport you across the ocean to other lands. Experience new sounds and indulge your senses in the colours and picturesque scenes painted by the flute and guitar.

Australian guitarist Daniel Nistico and American flutist Marla Nistico invite you to a voyage to experience new sounds and indulge your senses in the colours and picturesque scenes of works by Manuel de Falla, Phillip Houghton, Robert Beaser, Mario Castlenuovo-Tedesco, and Astor Piazzolla painted by the flute and guitar.

Duo Vela has performed around the USA, including Upstate New York, Washington DC and Virginia. The duo has been featured on Classical WXXI’s Backstage Pass with Julia Figueras and WRUR’s Open Tunings with Scott Regan. Most recently, Duo Vela performed on the Tidewater Classical Guitar Society’s 2015-2016 Season.

In May 2016, the Shanghai International Cultural Arts Co. will host Duo Vela for a series of concerts in and around Shanghai, China. Immediately following, Duo Vela will play concerts in Australia and New Zealand, which will also coincide with the release of their debut album.


All Grove Classics 2016 performances at The Grove feature a complimentary wine tasting  and the intimacy of superb chamber music in the comfortable environment of the state-of-the-art The Grove Library building, Peppermint Grove.
