Bilal Irshed & Global Tunes is a pioneering orchestra consisting of eight musicians all coming from different ethnic and musical backgrounds.
The nationalities of the group-members span four continents and each brings to the orchestra, his or her own unique sound. This line-up serves to
create a beautiful and captivating dialogue between the musicians, which is both harmonious and expressive. The orchestra has been touring Denmark since spring 2014 and has received great acclaim for their live performances.
The orchestra started as part of an collaborative project, towards the end of 2013, between the Cultural School in Ishøj, Denmark, and the Danish Musicians Union, although the project was originally initiated by Lars Bo Kujahn and funded by the Danish Arts Council.
