Vancouver Island roots music group Three Worlds – comprised of acclaimed instrumental virtuosos Brad Prevedoros, Niel Golden, and Greg Joy – have released their debut collectively-created album in Victoria. The new recording features the trio’s unique blend of world music styles.
Brad Prevedoros is renowned for his instrumental virtuosity, exuberant live performances, original compositions, and innovative re-imaginings of works by other composers. His repertoire of multi-genre music engages his audience through a mix of Jazz, Latin, Pop, Classical, Celtic, and Folk.
Niel Golden is a percussionist specializing in tabla hand drums. Niel masterfully interprets Indian Classical music, African, Blues, and other world music styles, his career spans three decades career. A highlight of his recordings and performances is his manipulation of the new and elusive Hang (pronounced Hung), a flying saucer-esque instrument from Switzerland.
Greg Joy brings a fusion of Celtic, folk-baroque, folk-rock, and contemporary jazz elements to the mix, through his mastery of guitar, flute, mandolin, and hammered dulcimer. Joy has recorded eighteen albums and his music has been used on many compilation albums in Europe and South-east Asia.
The release of a new record by any one of these three musicians would be cause for celebration. The release of this collective Three Worlds offering is arguably the Vancouver Island’s World Music event of the year.
