A word about AlmaNova from Las Vegas

The review below was published in "City Life", a Las Vegas publication for the arts....our concert was one of their "picks" :)

ps....we also want to thank one of our fans, Mitzi. She heard us perform in Ventura County and recommended us to the World Vibrations Concert series in Las Vegas. Because of her kind words and raving reviews, they invited us to perform for the series. We love our fans and can't thank them enough for supporting us and our music THANK YOU, MITZI!!!!!!


"AlmaNova is the kind of music your Northern Californian brother-in-law with the graying ponytail listens to while he's stomping grapes to make his own wine. Bosnian guitarist/composer Almer Imamovic and American flautist Jessica Pierce play finger board/key-burning riffs that would send lesser musicians into early and painful bouts of tendonitis (perfect tempo for jumping on fruit), but with the romantic sophistication of being unpercussive and solely based on wind and string instruments (because making wine is classy). It's the kind of music you'd probably hear between breaks during State of Nevada on KNPR. And you should hear it this weekend at the Winchester Cultural center, because AlmaNova might make some of the most interesting, complicated and flat-out beautiful music we've ever heard come out of a guitar/flute duo. You don't even need a graying ponytail to get in."
