One of the leading Danish Folk bands Phønix meets the talented young Chinese guzhengplayer Sangka. The Chinese guzheng has a dreamy pentatonic sound, which in a beautiful way plays up against Phønix’s energetic groovy sound. The repertoire is a mixture of Danish folk ballads, traditional Chinese tunes, new compositions and improvisations played with virtuosity, humor, empathy and joy. It is a cultural meeting between two very diferent musical traditions and together they create a special and unique new sound universe.
Mange gamle salmer blev skrevet på folkemelodier som menigheden kendte og holdt af og derfor nemt kunne synge med på. Phønix ønsker at vise, hvordan salmerne lyder, hvis man spiller dem med folkemusikkens drive og dansable swing.
Phønix and dance group Embla have combined forces, creating a show that captures the interplay of music and dance together. Presenting a modern interpretation of the folk tradition in Denmark - a performance art showcase rooted in ages old Danish and Nordic traditions of dance, songs and melodies.
