The Witches

Experimental chamber duo The Witches has developed a wide and vibrant language, creating sonic worlds that flex between microscopic and massive, sweet and ferocious. Using flutes, vocals, violin, and viola, Louna Dekker-Vargas and Ledah Finck perform their own works, commission young composers writing in a variety of styles, and improvise together in a dialogue that is instantly recognizable for combining playfulness and precision. Founded in 2015 as best friends who wanted to make music together but lacked a repertoire that spoke to them, The Witches have since then been speaking for themselves and creating a unique body of work, the goal of which is subvert traditional notions of femininity in music and celebrate the rough edges of performance as well as highly polished ones.
