Alarga played during our wedding ceremony, and the addition of their music made the ceremony intimate and special. They are both extremely talented professionals, learning our desired music and making it their own through slight modifications to make the tunes best fit their Guitar/Violin duo. We highly recommend Alarga to give a wonderful performance at any event. They were a joy to work with!
