The new CD This World Oft Can Be by Della Mae will be released on May 28th by Rounder Records. The official video for this CD has been made available some days ago. Della Mae play their song Empire, one of my favorite songs from the new album.
The video has also been featured on the CMT website.
Della Mae – “Empire” (Official Video)
Della Mae has toured in Germany in December 2011 as part of the annual Bluegrass Jamboree, I have seen the band in the concert given in Offenburg.
You can listen to the complete CD This World Oft Can Be already at Airplay Direct:
Last year Della Mae were part of a program to bring American music to South- and Central-Asia (see article below). During this tour there were some very special encounters between American Bluegrass and Asian traditional music, like in the following video:
Aged Pine – Анда сен
Della Mae and Устатшакирт
I have made a playlist with some new videos by Della Mae. The playlist includes a complete show (Winter Village Bluegrass Festival, Hangar Theatre, 1/26/13) and some versions of the song Empire from different concerts.
Enjoy Della Mae!

I recently toured with the dynamic five-girl bluegrass group Della Mae for a “Bluegrass on the Silk Road” tour of South and Central Asia. American Music Abroad activities focus on younger and underserved audiences in countries with little or no access to live American performances. As such, Della Mae kicked off their tour in Islamabad, Pakistan, at the all-female Fatima Jinnah University.
Della Mae’s presence on campus was akin to that of the Beatles or the Rolling Stones — students at the country’s first female university were so excited to hear the female bluegrass band that they literally tore the doors off the hinges of the theater to get in on the sound check warm-up. “We’ve never played for crowds so excited and enthused to hear live music,” said Della Mae fiddler Kimber Ludiker.
