Young British guitarists Mikhail Asanovic and
Jake Wright, together known as The Showhawk Duo, have dazzled audiences
worldwide with their spectacular approach to playing the guitar.
Their playing style has broken down barriers
between acoustic and electronic music. Whether playing old-school trance
classics or modern funky house, their live show knows no boundaries and will
leave you amazed.
Mik is a classical guitarist at heart, having
studied at Manchester's RNCM whereas Jake is an electric junkie and grew up
playing in rock and metal bands. Mik's classical foundation shines through in
the music with Jake's raw percussive approach always keeping the crowd moving.
Together they create a truly unique and impressive sound, and have turned many
"acoustic" nights into a thumping rave.
