Rob Zielinski and Manuela Centanni

Rob and Manuela explore the classic flute and fiddle tradition of the West Coast of Ireland. They also regularly perform Rob's original compositions including his 52 min long Torbay Suite.


Manuela Centanni has a bachelor degree in classical flute from The Conservatoire of Bologna. She started to play Irish Traditional music on the wooden flute in 2017 and has become a fixture of Dunedin’s music scene, regularly attending the Irish session on Tuesdays and being the only flute player in the Dunedin Scottish Fiddle Orchestra.
