Spanish, Cuban and Klezmer melodies are among the many influences that shape the original music of The Monarch Duo. Composer/Guitarists Cameron Peace and Eli Rosenblatt follow each other through musical landscapes that range from tightly arranged, intricate musical tapestries reminiscent of Piazzola to hypnotic ostinatos recalling the music of Northern Africa.  Their music is at once playful and transcendental, evoking deep, complex emotion as well as lighthearted sense of freedom and exuberant exploration.
