Mathias Duplessy & The Violins of the World

French musician
Mathias Duplessy meets Mongolian musician Enkhjargal Dandarvaanchig, and it's magical.

If Sergio Leone were alive today, he would make a new western just to go with this music.

The rather strange-looking instrument being played by Aliocha Regnard is called a "nyckelharpa," which is a Swedish instrument somewhat related to a hurdy-gurdy.

I dashed up to the Cities a few weeks ago to catch Väsen live at the Cedar. They were amazing and the nyckelharpa is an awesome instrument. This quartet is cool too, and I would love to not only see them live but also watch the western to which it could be matched.
