Breaking all the stylistic rules Global Groove LAB from Vienna has released its debut album "Iím a Stranger".

In their "LAB" they experiment with melodies, grooves and genres from around the world. Traditions combined with modern sound express the musical journey of the multicultural line‐up of the band.

Inspirations are coming from the Balkans, Reggae, India, Africa, Latin America, rock, jazz and even classical music.
The texts are critical of society, political, but also about the finer things in life.

All started as an experimental jam session led by Russian violinist Pavel Shalman. It involved musicians from Bulgaria, Morocco, Palestine, Romania, Nigeria, Macedonia, Tunisia, Bosnia, Brazil, Ukraine, Hungary, Turkey, India, Venezuela, Trinidad & Tobago and more, eventually leading to the formation of Global Groove LAB.
