Chuva Guitar Duo:
Borna Kuca and Rafael Onyett
Programme to include music by Piazzolla, De Falla and Tadic
Duo Chuva are a Manchester-based guitar duo that was founded in 2018 by guitarists Rafael Onyett and Borna Kuca, whilst studying at the Royal Northern College of Music. Under the tutelage of renowned guitarist Craig Ogden, the duo quickly developed a strong musical chemistry and have since performed frequently across the UK. Such venues include Wakefield Cathedral, Whitworth Art Gallery, Southport Christ Church, Bury Parish Church, Instituto Cervantes and Bridgewater Hall as part of Craig Ogden’s ‘Big Guitar Weekend.’ Most recently the duo performed a live concert streamed online from Preston Museum as well as reaching the semi-finals of the Royal Overseas League annual music competition which will be held in London in October 2021.
Although a Manchester-based duo, Borna originally hails from Croatia and Rafael is of Latin American heritage. The result is an interesting amalgamation of varied musical experiences and cultures, and an overall desire to explore music from different parts of the world.
This is reflected in a diverse mixture of classical and folk repertoire and even the exploration of different folk instruments, such as the mandolin. In 2019, Duo Chuva developed an exciting live music and dance collaborative project, with a re-imagined performance of Astor Piazzolla’s Tango Suite. The project debuted at the Instituto Cervantes, Manchester.
