Luca first met the guitar at the age of ten when his mother gave his father a guitar as a Christmas present. His first souvenir is about his father singing a traditional Neapolitan song, a song about love and passion: the guitar seemed not only to accompany but also to interact with the lyrics by underlining many passages with funny musical themes, creating a lightness even in dramatic and melancholic moments. From that moment his desire was to recreate that same impression of that moment.
Maarten Vandenbemden (born 1994) starts his musical journey as a toddler with his father Roland, who would remain his guitar teacher for ten years. During these years, Maarten also studies the piano, organ, harmony and chamber music at the music academy of his hometown Tervuren.
