Winner of the Music Crossroads InterRegional Festival (IRF) in Lilongwe, Malawi in August 2008, MOKOOMBA brings audiences an electrifying blend of Afro-fusion and tantalizing traditional Tonga rhythms. The name MOKOOMBA stems from the deep respect that the Tonga people have for the Zambezi River and for the vibrant life that it brings to their music and culture.

Talisk — Not the folk band you were expecting, but the one you need.
Warning — If you see the concertina, fiddle and guitar that constitutes the instrumental setup of Glasgow’s Talisk and assume it’s going to be what you picture in your head, it’s not.
...incredibly infectious and endearing… fresh, invigorating, accomplished and playfully frisky.

Steve Reich, actually Stephen Michael Reich, (* October 3, 1936 in New York City, New York) is an American composer, pianist and percussionist who is best known in the field of minimal music and is considered one of its pioneers, although he distanced himself from the pure minimalist style in later works. His inspirations come from original African drum music or Balinese gamelan music, as an expression of non-Western folk music, as well as electronic techniques or phasing, music from the Baroque, Renaissance or the Middle Ages, through to psychedelic rock, jazz and composers of the 20th century...

Dawn and Margie Beaton, who come from a long line of Celtic musicians, started their musical careers at the age of four, learning step dance from their grandmother.
Coming from a family of fiddlers, dancers, and singers, learning stepdancing and the violin at a young age was a logical development. It's a continuation of that significant culture into vibrant tunes and arrangements as the Beaton Sisters' Band!

Martin Hayes’ fiddle playing style is characterised by his unique laid back approach to the music. While he’s fully capable of playing tunes at a rip roaring pace (and occasionally does), more often than not, he chooses to drastically slow the tempo of the tunes he plays.

Thanks for the "archaic" sound in a contemporary gown, Stephen.

Leenalchi shows us just how experimental and avant-garde the K-pop scene can be. The band from Seoul has dedicated itself to reinterpreting the Korean storytelling genre "Pansori", which is characterised by a special style of performance with vocals and percussion. The band sings verses from traditional Korean fairy tales and draws musical inspiration from alt-rock and eighties new wave. By breaking down and rearranging traditional elements, they create music that is future-orientated but at the same time strongly anchored in tradition.
The band has a unique lineup, with two female and one male traditional Korean singers, two bassists and a drummer. The traditional singers are graduates of Seoul National University's traditional music department.

Creating some of the most innovative sounds in East Asia’s underground scene, Jambinai are an award-winning post-rock/world music hybrid act that was formed in Seoul, South Korea in 2009 by guitarist and piri (oboe) player Ilwoo Lee, haegum (a fiddle-like instrument) player Bomi Kim, and geomungo (zither) player Eun Young Sim.
Ilwoo, Bomi, and Eun Young became acquainted while studying at the Korea National University of Arts. After graduating, they ran into each other after a mutual friend’s concert. They began chatting about Korean traditional music and how they felt it needed to find a new way to present itself. That chance encounter led to the birth of Jambinai.
