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.
On this very opening day of the Copenhagen Jazz Festival you can experience the band playing in the beautiful church Sankt Jakobs Kirke in Østerbro, Copenhagen. The room inside has an exquisite atmosphere and beautiful vibrant acoustics, which add to the overall of a band who knows how to “play the room” so to speak.
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
