Called, “Extraordinary” by Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, Lisa and Erika have been performing together since 2006 while performing at a festival in the American heartland.
Hearing their remarkable vocal blend, Lisa and Erika began to explore a musical collaboration.
They have since recorded 5 albums together.
Before joining efforts, each musician spent years polishing her craft, gaining accolades and awards in her wake. As a child, Lisa heard vibrations emanating from flowers and trees, symphonies ringing from the garden. She sang what she heard and developed a dynamic range that allowed her to interpret the music of the world. Whether inspiring congregations, leading sizzling dance bands or melting audiences with stirring interpretations of jazz standards, every note and breath is infused with her soulful awareness. Ferraro s voice and presence command attention and exude the sublime.
Erika was steeped in the pulse of the planet with her transcontinental upbringing. Born in Mexico and raised in Venezuela and Brazil, she listened to the dance of her surroundings: the sambas and rancheras swaying through the streets, the songs of frogs in the trees. Each element found expression through her instrument and voice. Her innovative guitar playing emerged from the desire to create an orchestra of sound from only six strings.
Their trajectories first intersected in 2006 while performing at a festival in the American heartland. Hearing their remarkable vocal blend, Lisa and Erika began to explore a musical collaboration.
Within months, they teamed up with Sufi scholar and author, Kabir Helminski, to create a collection of songs inspired by the 13th century mystic poet, Rumi. A short time later, they arrived in the captivating richness of Istanbul collaborating and recording with Turkish musicians for their album entitled On The Way of Love: Songs Inspired by Rumi. Their music ignited a surge of invitations across the globe from Melbourne, Australia, across the US, Canada, Mexico and Europe.
