When a concertmaster from Vienna, a Jewish singer from Czernowitz, an accordion player from Kiev who is a master on the panflute, a base player from Hungary and a drummer from Stammersdorf get together you create “World Music”. A form of playing music, without borders and boundaries that reconciles and connects five cultures into a joint new form. “These songs in Moll can be tears of joy or a smile amongst tears. The lyrics are modest in their simplicity, moving in their humour and profound in the way they express humility, joy or sadness. “Let it be mine”, says a song, “Give me your suffering, before you suffer and your sadness, before you are sad.”
