Tokso

means bow in Greek, and is the name of the string quartet I had the pleasure of listening to a few days ago. The quartet consists of musicians from France, Greece and Norway, playing the traditional instruments nykkelharpe, cello, Cretan lyra and Hardanger fiddle. Together they create an intercultural, yet impressively authentic sound of folk music.

The songs are composed and arranged by the members of the group, and each song has its recognizable signature¬† from the nationality of the particular songwriter. The band is touring frequently in Europe. If they pop up in your neighborhood, you wouldn’t want to miss them! Tokso
