Wenzell & Bugge is part of CulturalBridges2016 programming. The personal interpretation of the duo gives the listener a contemporary view of music. They show a new musical experience thats exciting, far from anything else we have heard before, but it is a joyful experience. The starting point of the repertoire is a meeting of Danish folk music with classical music. A good example is the composition “Thy-tyrkeren “- a piece that combines traditional folk music of the region Thy (Denmark), Turkish folk melodies mixed with classical music of Norwegian composer Edward Grieg and American Paul Smadbeck – all played on instruments different as marimba, vibraphone, Chinese tam, Spanish cajon, Japanese taiko drum, and of course …… violin!
