Cheng² Duo

Captivating audiences and critics alike, the “brilliant” (The Sunday Times) and “truly exhilarating” (The WholeNote) Cheng² Duo (pronounced Cheng Squared Duo) distinguishes itself with its uncompromising musical integrity, undeniable chemistry, and unparalleled communication with its listeners.
