Duo Alrisha


Duo Alrisha was founded in 2013 as a result of a strong musical connection between violin players Chafik Cherkaoui and Lieke Daniels. Lieke studied violin and viola in Tilburg (the Netherlands) and Chafik in Rabat (Morocco). Before their debut  as a duo they played together in different orchestras and ensembles in the Netherlands.

The name Alrisha derives from the Arabic name of a star in the constellation Pisces, which is the zodiac sign of both Chafik and Lieke.

Duo Alrisha already gave a lot of concerts in the last year and provided background music for weddings, anniversaries and other special events.

The duo has a very diverse repertory, consisting of works by, among others, Telemann, Sarasate, Shostakovich, Bach and Viotti and also performs light (film)music, tango and folk music and is therefore suitable for all kinds of occasions. 

A wonderful, sparkling and promising duo with a colorful blend of two different cultures and a repertory consisting of everything in between Bach and the Beatles.
