Domra and Guitar Duo 9 String Theory – Piazzolla, Villa-Lobos, Paganini, Scarlatti and Russian Melodies
I have recently discovered the domra and guitar duet 9 String Theory from Atlanta, USA. They have just gievn an interview to present their next concert. It is available on the website of WABE
9 String Theory is not just a catchy name but also a straightforward calculation. It’s a musical duo featuring Angelina Galashenkova on the domra, which has three strings, and John Huston on classical guitar, which has six strings.

“The highest open string on the guitar is the lowest note on the domra,” Huston said. “It lends itself as an expanded guitar or the guitar a very deep and harmonized domra.”
Galashenkova and Huston released a self-titled CD, which features tradition Russian folk songs, Manuel de Falla, George Gershwin, Béla Bartók and several pieces by Astor Piazzolla.
