Afenginn is a folk rock band from Denmark. Some time ago I have dicovered this video with a 10-minute performance given at the Choirnevale at “Kulturarena” in Jena in Germany. Kim Rafael Nyberg who does also play the mandolin with Afenginn has composed the music.
Enjoy this very special video with Afenginn!

During our hilidays in London we have visited two free concerts in the National Portrait Gallery. The second concert was given by a group named Melange.
Melange was founded by the cellist Shirley Smart.
She has spent many years in Israel and has become acquainted with the music of the East. Melange is playing a mix of World Music from different regions of the world, using instruments like the cello of Shirley Smart, the Arabian oud or the saxophone.
The concert in the National Portrait Gallery was given by a trio with cello, accordion and percussion. The program contained a mix of pieces from the Middle East and from Africa.
I have found some videos with the group Melange from London:

Melange is also playing the music of South America, including Argentinian tango and Brazilian choro. I have found the following video of a performance that includen Anselmo Netto playing the bandolim, they play a version of the Czardas by V. Monti in a more Brazilian style:
