Blending eastern and western sounds, The Violins of the World is turning the earth on its ear. Asian always, spirit of the blues often, with Celtic rhythms and melodies of the Mongolian steppes offer an astonishing cross-cultural encounter. The result is a harmonious new style as balanced as yin and yang.
The brainchild of French Gypsy guitarist Mathias Duplessy, the group consists of Guo Gan from China with his fiddle Erhu; horsehead fiddler and throat singer Enkhjargal (Epi) Dandarvaanchig from Mongolia, and Tunisian violinist and composer Zied Zouari, backed by Duplessy’s propulsive guitar. The explosive foursome performs original compositions and wild covers like Morricone’s “The Good, the Bad and The Ugly” and Dire Straits’ “Brothers In Arms.”
Get ready – Duplessy & The Violins of the World will take you on a raucous ride at breakneck speed.
