The music of Modus is comprised of various world music threads. It weaves Mediterranean spirit and traditional sounds from Armenia with jazz and original compositions, creating a lively and colorful musical tapestry.
Pulsating rhythms, touching melodies and the touch of various cultures characterize the music of Modus.
The Syrian-Armenian singer Houry Dora Apartian masterfully builds a bridge between jazz and Oriental music. The New Yorker jazz harpist Park Stickney enhances the band's sound with his hypnotic sounds. The contrabassist Lorenz Beyeler and the Israeli-born percussionist Omri Hason form the core of the quartet.
With pulsating Oriental rhythms, hypnotic grooves and virtuosity – Modus Quartet conjures up a wide spectrum from melancholy to joy.
