Upcoming Release

W orld On A String will be recording their third album in August 2016. It is moreover in addition very exiting for us as we are introducing and welcoming a new member to the band – the young and immensely talented tabla player Mirwais Fedai. The album will partly be recorded live (studio) at the Village Recording, in front of an audience of invited guest, friends and colleagues – and partly as a regular studio album.

So stay tuned and in the meantime you can always seek comfort in our two album releases
