Embodied by José Luis Puerta and Alfredo Vázquez, the duo was formed in 2020 after a decade of collaborating and performing together in different ensemble settings, such as guitar orchestras and quartets. They have collaborated in the premieres of pieces by renowned composers such as Sergio Assad, Stephen Goss, Brad Richter, and Edwin Gueverra. Having both graduated from the University of Arizona, they were able to study individually under the tutelage of Sergio and Odair Assad. Which provided them with a unique understanding and appreciation of the guitar ensemble. The Puerta- Vazquez Duo bring artistry and mastery into the stage by merging their academic training and artistry to bring forward an extraordinary interpretation. The duo keeps an active performance schedule throughout the southwest United States and Latin America.
In Spring 2022 they released their debut album Appunti under the Record Label Contrastes Records. The album is focused on guitar duos by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.
