Sasha and Natarani Witten-Hannah have been performing for the last 15 years as The Heartstrings Duo – Cello and Classical Guitar.

They play in a wide range of styles including Classical, Latin, Spanish, Celtic fiddling music, 1920’s swing and instrumental arrangements of popular songs by request.

Their music has been enjoyed at fuctions in many parts of Auckland’s top venues including Sky City and The Sky Tower, Aotea Centre, Bruce Mason Centre, Auckland Museum, Duders,  Pullman’s Hotel, Mantells, Gracehill Vinyard, Markovina Vineyard, Casells, Waitakere Estate…

We are happy to perform indoors or out doors and have a fine sound system that can run from battery power.

Couples are invited to visit Heartstrings at their home to choose music for the wedding ceremony.

Thank you for your absolutely stunning performance at our wedding, it was everything that we had hoped for and more. Everyone loved it! Marc Karapanovic - 4 October 2014

Thanks so much Natarani and Sasha for your wonderful contribution to the enjoyment and success of my 60th birthday last Saturday. Marion - 11 January 2014

Dearest Natarani and Sasha I had to thank you one last time for being part of our day for our Mother. Your both really were amazing and gave the atmosphere we had hoped for. As the quote above you both are those charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. In absolute appreciation and with love Ani Lyng - 18 July 2015
