about the project

Otherlands: A Global Music Exploration follows GRAMMY nominated 5-string American fiddler Casey Driessen as he travels with his family to various countries across the globe to meet with local acoustic-based musicians with roots in their own traditions. Musical and cultural exchanges are documented via audio, video and photography elements with collected materials released over the course of the project.
