The weird and wonderful WÖR pumps new energy into old music with abandon. Their playful interpretations have found exceptional favour with the public. In 2018, their album Sssht won the prestigious Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik. Their latest album Onder Torens features carillon music. They have taken melodies from old Belgian carillon manuscripts and arranged them for the tight tempo work of the guitar and baritone sax, the riffs of the accordion, the drones of the bagpipes and the playful character of the violin. A virtuosic and fiery interpretation.
