Latin sounds will drift through the Star Theatre when the Grigoryan Brothers come to Launceston.
Classical guitarists Slava and Leonard Grigoryan recorded the Latin themed soundtrack to the award-winning movie A Boy Called Sailboat.
Now the duo are touring to perform the soundtrack live, while the film is screened to audiences.
"The whole idea of this is that it is so much more dynamic for the audience when you are hearing being created in the room right in front of you," Slava said.
"People can feel the energy we are generating."
The film follows the story of Sailboat, a boy who has brought love and hope to a family who have forged a life in the drought-ridden Deep South.

One afternoon, Sailboat brings home a little guitar that he becomes inseparable from. His ill grandmother requests Sailboat to write a song for her, and he delivers the unimaginable.
The soundtrack is a key element to the film and is unlike the music developed previously by the Grigoryan Brothers.
"[The music] was entirely different," Slava said.
The duo wanted to capture the Latin sound while including the familiar sound of nursery rhymes and other songs everyone would know.
"From that perspective, it was unlike anything we have done before," he said.
"[There's] lots of textural, atmospheric, and original music as well."
Slava said the soundtrack project had been in the pipeline for about ten years.
"The story was beautiful, we loved the idea," he said.
Once the film was up and running, the duo were kept updated and recorded some demo work.
From there, the script for the film was finalised and they recorded a few pieces to be used in some of the shots.
Finally, when the film was in the editing process, the Grigoryan Brothers were able to start recording in the studio.
"It's wonderful to be a part of [the film]," Slava said.
"For us, the connection with [director Cameron Nugent] and [producer Andrew Curry] has just been wonderful and they have been so open about the process, and so involved."
Nugent and Curry both said the brothers had delivered beyond expectations with the finished soundtrack.
"Their performance in the recording is just sublime, and once we heard it, we just knew that it would be best heard live," they said.
"To have such virtuoso musicians play on the film was a very personal honour, and the experience of hearing the creations in the studio was pure joy."
The Grigoryan Brothers will visit the Star Theatre on April 17.
After the performance, there will be a Q&A with the brothers and also with Nugent.
