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 had the pleasure to be joined by a new percussionist – 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 spring.

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 – guitar, Morten Lundsby – bass, Mirwais Fedai – tabla
