Fuse is a string collective from Amsterdam with musicians that have their roots in classical, jazz, latin and pop music. With a set-up of five string players and drums Fuse demonstrates how to cross the borders of musical genres.
The FUsion String Ensemble will make an appearance at the Classical Music Rave in Amsterdam in the night of Friday 22 August 2014 at around 2:15 AM.
