Wendell Dobbs, flute
Julio Ribeiro Alves, guitar
The Violauta Duo is compound by flutist Wendell Dobbs and guitarist Júlio Ribeiro Alves, colleagues in the School of Music and Theatre at Marshall University. The name Violauta is coined from the Portuguese words for guitar (violão) and flute (flauta). The duo has performed a wide variety of repertoire from various ethnicities over the past several years. They are particularly interested in performing works recently created for flute and guitar. Alves performs on guitars by Luthier John H. Dick, while Dobbs performs on a modern wooden flute by Chris Abell and historical reproductions by John Gallagher.
