After 40 minutes the album is over. You wish it would take 40 hours. 


– Hans Jürgen Schaal in “Fidelty”


ConnectsMusicis thrilled to share with you this amazing duo Luciano Biondi & Klaus Falschlunger! This is a musical collaboration that might be new to your ears – a meeting point for two diverse musical styles and traditions, combining the classic accordionwith the authentic sounds of the traditional sitar.


On their first album “Once In A Blue Moon” the two artists are exploring the possibilities to shift the boundaries and find a mix between Indian music, jazz, pop and folk – music filled with poetry, energy and fine humour.


Experience this unique duo’s album ‘Once in a Blue Moon’ here:




Luciano Biondini started classical training at a young age and was declared world champion on the instrument. He started studying the accordion seriously at age 10 and has been awarded many prizes for classical accordion, e.g. Trophée Mondial de l’Accordéon and Premio Internazionale di Castelfidardo. Since his turning to jazz in 1994 Biondinihas played with the likes of Rabih Abou-Khalil, Dave Bargeron, Michel Godard, Battista Lena, Gabriele Mirabassi, Enrico Rava, Tony Scott and many others. A true master of his instrument and a soloist with an overwhelming dramatism, he always adds something beautiful and original to any context he works. CDs released on ACT LABEL & Intakt Records.


Klaus Falschlunger, studied from 1991 to 1995 Indian classical music and sitar in New Delhi and Varanasi in Northern India. Growing up with jazz and rock music, he discovered in his extensive travels to Asia, the Middle East and Europe, more and more the diversity of music. Next to his love for Indian classical music, he composed and experimented with different formations. His creativity and versatility brought him together with many musicians and artists from India, Korea, USA and Europe e.g. Bob Mintzer, Kim Dok Suu and many others. CDs released on ATS-Records.

”Mountains & Plains” – Zoltan Lantos & Klaus Falschlunger – Violin/Sitar:



The multi-award-winning Hungarian violinist Zoltan Lantos and Klaus Falschlunger, one of the most distinguished Europeansitar players, hold an extensive dialogue with their instruments. With their new program “Mountains and Plains” they explore Western and Eastern musical traditions.

Urban Strings – Geo Popoff & Klaus Falschlunger – Beatbox & Sitar:



One could not imagine such a duo! Beatbox & Indian sitar?


However, what vocalist Geo Popoff, a two-time world beatbox champion, and Klaus Falschlunger, an excellent sitarist, have to offer is astonishing. The two musicians’ pieces are bursting with playfulness and ingenuity. Indian music, hip-hop, folk, pop… but with this line-up everything sounds completely different. It’s a brilliant exchange and collaboration to create and expand any recognisable musical worlds – a dream dance between eastern ballads and explosive, rhythmic elements.
