About Duplessy & The Violins Of The World

 

The Violins Of The World is the brainchild of French Gypsy guitarist and composer Mathias Duplessy. It brings together the rhythms and melodies of many different cultures in an incredible new style of exotic and unique arrangements. 

 

Asian always, spirit of the blues often, and Celtic rhythms and melodies of the Mongolian steppe offer an astonishing cross-cultural encounter. The four virtuosos bridge the gap between tradition and modernity.

 

The group consists of Guo Gan from China with his fiddle Erhu; Dalaijargal Daansuren from Mongolia with the horse-headed fiddle and throat singing, and American fiddler extraordinaire Casey Driessen, backed by Duplessy’s propulsive acoustic guitar.

 

This upcoming spring 2023, Duplessy & The Violins Of The World will tour the United States for the first time with Kodiak being one of the first locations!
