Giesta duo explores the confluence between medieval music and the oral traditions of the Mediterranean. Joana and Irene use recorders, traditional percussion, and singing to get closer to both western written music and popular music from Portugal, Spain, and other cultures. Giesta uses the influence of a historically informed approach to fix and reinvent these repertoires.
The duo is based in the Netherlands. Joana Guiné and Irene Sorozábal met during their flute studies at the Amsterdam Conservatory. Irene is currently pursuing a Master of Historical Singing at the same conservatory while Joana is studying a Singing Degree at the HKU Conservatory in Utrecht.
