Bugge Wesseltoft Top 10 Albums 2012

Best wishes for a peaceful new year for everyone!

What we do need is Good Music!

Strong music played by dedicated talented artists is the exact opposite of hate and violence. I strongly believe in music as worldwide key elements in peace and understanding among people and cultures. I have been so fotunate this year to start up a new band "Ok World" bringing together talented musicians from all over the world projecting just that.  Peace Love and Understanding. We are sceduled for a world premiere at Oslo World Music Festival in November.Looking forward! Have also been so fortunate to produce albums for both  Hong Kongnese superstar Karen Mok along with amazing Asian Jazzmusicians and wonderful Mid Eastern Vocalist Rim Banna and Palestinian, Tunisian musicians.

It is like a dream come through to travel around meeting such amazing people all with the same goal. Make good music. Thank you!
