WORLD ON A STRING belong to one of those rare bands that presently has held together for over 12 years and the result unfolds itself in an most unusual ensemble playing.
However, new forces are at play, as we have the pleasure to introduce a newcomer to the band – namely the young talented tabla player Mirwais Fedai. Adding to this we also have the joy to announce that WOAS are on the way with their third album – coming out this autumn and moreover this “new beginning” starts off with a German tour – now isn’t that just wonderful.
WOAS has received many overwhelming reviews and their concerts have delighted many both at home and abroad. Their music is not easy to put a label on, but let’s forget about unnecessary labels for once – with their own unique special blend of world music, consisting of Indian, Balkan and Irish folklore coupled with jazz and blues influences, it feels like the most natural thing in the world.
The individual members are known from many different contexts: the Danish Radio Big Band, Palle Mikkelborg, Shashank, Bo Stief, Mike Sheridan, Paulo Russo, Afenginn and many more.
Bjarke Falgren – violin & viola, John Sund – 6 & 12 string guitars, Morten Lundsby – bass, Mirwais Fedai – tabla
