Duo Siqueira Lima is one of the most prestigious chamber ensembles, having won the Profissionais da Música Award 2015 in Brazil and the International Press Award 2014 in the United States. Their work features music from the classical repertoire to popular music of Latin America.
The Siqueira Lima guitar duo is formed by Cecilia Siqueira, born in Uruguay, and Fernando de Lima from Minas Gerais, Brazil. Cecilia and
Fernando are recognized for their technical and interpretive virtuosity and daring and original arrangements for two guitars. Since 2003, they have toured the world performing in major European capitals, and many cities in North America as well as sojourns to Africa and Russia. They are favorites
throughout the major music centers in Latin America and in the prestigious halls of Lincoln Center (New York), New World Center (Miami), and Concertgebouw (Amsterdam) among others.
"Cecilia Siqueira, from Uruguay, and Fernando de Lima, from Brazil were more geographically diverse in pieces as finely detailed as a Fabergé egg.”
