EKKO & The Syrian Roots (DK/SY)

EKKO stands for “Esbjerg Kommunes Kreative Orkester” and these young and gifted musicians from the city of Esbjerg next to Fanø are bold explorers of creativity, music, and open borders – and an orchestra which has recently been invited to be the house band of Danish Radio24Syv. With their expanded project EKKO & The Syrian Roots, the band explores crossroads of Nordic and Arab music together with the Syrian musician Bakri Hemmami. The orchestra’s unique blend of Nordic and Arab folk music is highly fitting with the spirit of Fanø Free Folk Festival and we’re delighted that EKKO & The Syrian Roots will open this year’s festival!

The concert is supported by PULS.
