Global Village Orchestra

10 musicians bring together 8 different nationalities. Spectacular Senegalese and Turkish vocalizing, steaming Balkanesque improvisations and even some infectious Uighurian flavor. A vital, exotic feast of color!

In the US, South Americas, Canada and Japan under license of Random Chance Records, NYC
