The duo “Amala” is Reidun Schlesinger (harps) and Paul de Grae (guitars). We play music from several centuries, in original arrangements. The core of our repertoire is Irish: traditional Irish tunes, and pieces from the Irish harp repertoire; we also play music from various Continental European countries, some jazz, and our own jazz-tinged compositions.
