"This was glorious music that raised spirits, roofs and not a few pulses along the way. Yet another magnificent musical detour that unleashed our imaginations and our energies, free to roam where passports and language barriers hold no sway."
Siobhan Long, The Irish Times
MOZAIK is truly a World Music band. Andy Irvine (Ireland), Nikola Parov (Hungary), Bruce Molsky (USA), Dónal Lunny (Ireland & Japan) and Rens van der Zalm (now Holland but soon to be Australia). They keep the airlines in business! The band has played at many of the world’s major festivals and concert halls in Australia, Japan, USA, Ireland, Italy and the UK. (Vicar Street, National Concert Hall, Cork Opera House notably).
The music is a fiery fusion of Irish, Balkan, and American Old Time music. Each member of the band has recorded extensively during their musical careers. Between them the band plays over 20 instruments with Nikola covering a bewildering range of East European instruments that many people will never have seen before. Even Mozaik’s new studio album “Changing Trains” was recorded and mixed in four different countries! It brings this unique combination of musical genres to a new high.
