Harp & Guitar Music from Ireland & Elsewhere

Amala is a newly-formed duo: 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 music from the Irish harp repertoire; we also play tunes from various continental European countries, Renaissance and early classical pieces, some jazz, and our own (rather jazz-tinged) compositions. Feel free to check out Amala’s website:   www.amala.ie
