VS Guitar Duo is a unique duet consisting of Vadim Kolpakov, the famous seven-string guitarist and special guest artist of Madonna’s "Sticky & Sweet" world tour, along with his nephew, virtuoso Sasha Kolpakov. These two musicians continue the tradition of the famous Kolpakov family’s Russian-Gypsy artistic dynasty, which is already in the third generation. Vadim and Sasha Kolpakov unite music from different parts of the world - Romani (Gypsy), American Jazz, Latin and Spanish Flamenco - and conquer the hearts of audiences with incendiary melodies and dances that originated centuries ago in the Romani camps of Russia and Europe. They have performed extensively in the US, Canada, Europe, Russia and Singapore. In March 2017, the VS Guitar Duo released a debut album titled "Under Cover," which represents the best world hits, delivered in their unique interpretation and style - and received internationally with great success.
Vadim is a virtuoso Russian-Romani (Gypsy) seven-string guitarist, dancer, and vocalist. He has performed extensively in Russia and abroad, including at Carnegie Hall (NYC), Wembley Stadium (London) and the Kremlin.
He has also participated in numerous musical projects on Russian, Canadian, and American television and radio. Since the mid-1990s, he has been a member of the Russian-Romani group The Kolpakov Trio, and in 2004 he assembled his own group in the United States, Via Romen. His musical repertoire includes 19th-century Russian seven-string guitar, and Gypsy, classical, rap, pop and world music. In 2008 and 2009, Vadim participated in Madonna’s "Sticky & Sweet” world tour as a part of The Kolpakov Trio.
Sasha is a virtuoso guitarist of the famous Romani (Gypsy) artistic dynasty that has given the world three generations of exceptional musicians. He is the owner of numerous awards as a virtuoso guitar player at national and international music competitions.
Sasha have been actively performing and competing both in Russia and abroad (Europe, Asia, USA, Canada). He performs with Via Romen (US–based ensemble) and in the famous ice show "Carmen” by Olympic Champion Ilya Averbukh. Repertoire of Sasha includes Romani (Gypsy) music, Latin American, Jazz and Spanish Flamenco. Similar to his uncle Vadim, Sasha represents Kremona Guitars.
