World On A String is a quartet that plays lyrical world music with a rhytmical and improvising drive, which is seldom heard on these latitudes.
World On A String has now existed for over 11 years. They have, all this time, nurtured their very own personal music-style and over the years the band has gathered a steady number of enthusiastic followers.
They released their debut album in 2004, to rave reviews, and their newly released CD “Second Outlet”, is taking their music to the next level. The band explores fearlessly the borders among different styles of world music and makes it their very own style.
You will effortlessly be introduced to music, which has its offspring in Indian, Baltic, Irish and Nordic folklore, mixed with jazz, rock and pop. World On A String has reached an unusual level of ensample playing and they are as a unit, capable ofinterplay of an almost telepathic rapport and combined with their contagious enthusiasm, makes their live performances and extraordinary and uplifting experience.
The four musicians: John Sund – 6 & 12 string guitars, Bjarke Falgren – violin & viola, Morten Lundsby – contrabass and Mirwais Fedai – tabla, have for a long time been a part of the Danish jazz/world-scene and toured in most parts of the world.
They have worked both live and in the studio with such different artists as: Van Morrison, The Danish Radio Big Band, NHØP Quartet, Lelo Nika, Creme Fraiche, Bo Stief, Palle Mikkelborg, Ganesh & Kumaresh, Mariam Mursal, Susi Hyldgaard and Jens Lysdal, and many more.
