Duplessy and The Three Violins of The World

Release date:
2 Septembre 2010

Throughout his voyages to the far east and beyond, composer, arranger and multi instrumentalist Mathias Duplessy has been graced by many "chance" and fortuitous encounters with some of the worlds most accomplished musicians.
His passion for undiscovered musical terrains and his diverse musical endeavors- numerous films, world tours and albums- has led him to experiences that most musicians could only dream of.
And dream he does....
While recording music for a feature film in Bombay, India with Sarangi (indian violin) player, Sabir Khan, Mathias stumbled across yet another innovative vision- A three pronged project comprised of Sabir's eloquent and lyrical Sarangi playing, his own Mongolian Viele (which Mathias has studied for more than 5 years with his Master Enkh Jargal) and the chinese violin, the Ehru, played by his very good friend, the exiled Guo Gan who has lived in Paris now or some years.
One year later this "dream" became a reality thanks to Alain Weber, who gave the group their performance premiere at none other than the very prestigious Paris Indigenous Arts Museum, Quai Branly.
It was so successful that they decided to embark upon a world tour, which they will simultaneously record to provide an eclectic and original album of their most spectacular musical moments together.
A world premiere of three musicians from three diverse backgrounds, sharing the same stage.- the birth of a new musical adventure...Three young virtuosoes bridging the gap between tradition (each musician comes from a lineage of Masters) and the modern world.
