“Bursting with energy, charm, and high musical IQ, Stick & Bow combine two fabulous players in a wondrous and seductive union of sounds.” — Eric Siblin
Baruch PAC presents an exclusive performance of Stick & Bow, the genre-busting Montreal-based marimba and cello duo. In celebration of Latin American Heritage month, Stick & Bow takes the listener on a Grand Tour of Latin America, performing works by Astor Piazzolla, Hector Villa Lobos, Julio De Caro, Arturo Marquez, and more.
The performance is accessible online from September 25 (9 AM EDT) through September 30 (9 PM EDT). And on Wednesday, September 30 at 6:30 PM, enjoy a live conversation with the artists and Dr. Stephanie R. Golob, Director of Baruch College’s Initiative for the Study of Latin America (ISLA). Visit this link for more details, and to access both the performance and live conversation. Registration is required and admission is Pay-what-you-can.
Stick & Bow is also a couple and in the early-days for the duo Krystina was living in France and Juan Sebastian in Canada. “We had to be creative and find ways to see each other without having the budget to pay for plane tickets every time. So we found shows and performing opportunities that would permit us to play together.” Read our Insider interview to learn more about the ensemble.

Stick & Bow perform Astor Piazzolla’s
Invierno Porteño
Both classically trained musicians, Krystina Marcoux (marimba) and Juan Sebastian Delgado (cello) bring their creative energy to a wide spectrum of music, from rock to gypsy-jazz, baroque, and tango. Their eclectic repertoire features original arrangements of both celebrated and rarely heard works, showcasing a previously unheard range of voices in the combination of their instruments. In their creative process, they combine musical narration with story-telling in which the powerful combination of cello & marimba transforms familiar works in refreshing and unexpected ways.
This performance is co-presented with Baruch College’s Institute for the Study of Latin America (ISLA).
