Much like the other Alliances in the India-Nepal network, Alliance Française de Pune is renowned for its commitment towards supporting cultural and artistic initiatives. It is within this framework that the concert of the renowned R2T2 Guitar Duo was organised in collaboration with the Poona Music Society on Aug 26, 2018. Comprising of Raphaël Bereau and Tizoc Romero, the duo has taken the musical world by storm since its inception in June 2011. The two have since built up a dedicated fan-following thanks to a series of concerts in North America and Europe.
