“Where Language Fails” by Aminita Satori is an inspired new album with a modern twist on instrumental music.

Coming off a successful career producing soundtracks on major TV ad campaigns for companies like McDonald’s, Budweiser, and Verizon, Aminita Satori was no stranger to the world of music, music production, and the power and influence that music can have over us, but Satori had become disillusioned and wanted to create music without the constraints and commercialism of creating music for advertisements.  After discovering the lecture archives of the late philosopher and author, Terence McKenna, Satori found a five-year writer’s block melting away and chill music flooding in.

With plenty of flavor, passion, and technical know-how, you need to go check out the hot, electric violin duo, FUSE, out of the UK!

linzi-stoppard4   Two multi-talented violinists and rock/pop legends, Linzi Stoppard and Ben Lee, are carving out a unique musical niche and an equally unique fan base with their incredible sound!

Some people might try to say that the violin is old news and no longer relevant, but FUSE proves them wrong every time with their electrifying and powerful and (mostly) instrumental renditions of well-known hits, including “Beat It”, “The Final Countdown”, and the anthem from “Top Gun” to name just a few.  While still staying within the style realms of more classical and “movie” type pieces that are well-known for violin, FUSE’s song selections allow the duo to combine old and new flavors into their own unique and modern sound!
