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.
