Colours of the World is a varied, swinging collection of pieces each of which has its own colour. They include not only tango, blues, tex mex and Cuban but also house, Balkan and folk. To be able to play the pieces well you will need to have some playing experience; sometimes the third position is used and vibrato is also desirable. However, these fourteen pieces are relatively easy to play and you will gain much pleasure from them. Great attention has been paid to the accompaniment on the CD - the musicians are specialists in their field, so each piece has its own original atmosphere.

Colours of the World is een afwisselende verzameling van aanstekelijke speelstukken met elk een eigen klankkleur, van stevige rock en tex-mex tot warme Balkanklanken en housemuziek. Enige speelervaring is nodig om deze muziekgoed te kunnen spelen. Toch zijn het veertien goed speelbare stukken waaraan veel plezier te beleven is. Aan de begeleiding op de cd is veel aandacht besteed - de muzikanten zijn specialisten op hun gebied, zodat elk stuk zijneigen unieke sfeer ademt.

Colours of the World ist eine bunte Mischung von Stucken in Stilen aus aller Welt. Dazu gehoren z.B. Tango, Blues, Tex-Mex, kubanische Musik, House u. v. m. Die Stucke erfordern ein gutes Rhythmusgefuhl und einen ausreichenden Tonumfang. Die Begleitung auf der beiliegenden CD wurde von professionellen Musikern eingespielt. Dabei wurden fur die Stilarten typische Instrumente wie z.B. Becken oder Akkordeon verwendet, so dass die Stucke alle eine eigene, ursprungliche Atmosphare ausstrahlen.

Colours of the World ("Couleurs du monde") est le recueil ideal pour l'accordeoniste ayant deja une certaine experience instrumentale, et qui souhaite partir a la decouverte de styles et d'horizons musicaux nouveaux. Jos van den Dungen s'est inspire de musiques en provenance du monde entier (Irlande, Hongrie, Etats-Unis, Cuba, Argentine, Maroc, entre autres) et de differentes epoques. Laissez-vous seduire par le superbe accompagnement sur CD. Du rock a la house en passant par les sonorites chaleureuses de la musique des Balkans et tex-mex, ce recueil vous propose d'excellents moments musicaux.

Colours of the World e un libro che contiene brani provenienti da tutto il mondo in molti generi musicali come il tango, il blues, il tex-mex, musica cubana, ecc. L'esecuzione dei brani richiede un'adeguata conoscenza del ritmo. Il CD con le piste di accompagnamento (da parte di musicisti professionisti) propone incisioni con strumenti tipici per i vari generi musicali, come per esempio piatti o fisarmonica, per dare ai pezzi l'atmosfera originale.
