1001 Ways is a music group lead by violinist Tobias Huber, who hails from a musical family (His Grandmother comes from the Django Reinhardt family). They are based in Switzerland but are truly about global music. The other members are vocalist Yvonne Guldimann and Hilarius Dauag (Hailing from the Philippines), who performs on the balaphone and various flutes. Together they have recorded the CD 'Gandhi'. It is based on musical and spiritual traditions that are thousands of years old as well as blending modern pop sounds and chill-out elements. The truly exciting aspect of the CD is the using of the actual original recording of Mahatma Gandhi's voice from his 'Spiritual Message 1931' speech. This comes with the blessing of Dr. Arun Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi's grandson. This is the 1st time his voice has been used in such a manner. The sampling of phrases such as 'I can see, that in midst of darkness, light exists' and 'I can see, that in the midst of death, life exists' over the floating beats and swirling keyboards and flutes draws you into his message. But Tobias and 1001 Ways' mission is more than just music. The group's own dedication to the message of Gandhi is one they intertwine with their personal and professional lives. In September 2006 they launched 'The Gandhi Tour', which kicked off on September 15th at the 10th Earthdance hub event in California. As a special guest Arun Gandhi was on hand. This production will include both local and international artists and will combine modern sounds with ancient tradition to create a platform where artistry and positive messages unite. This vision is set to culminate with the '30 Days of Peace: A Global call to action', which has been celebrated and observed from September 11 to October 10, 2007. 1001 Ways is incorporating the old with the new. With deep lyrics and a large multicultural background they transport a musical vision of peace and tolerance to the world. 1001 Ways performed at International Festivals around the world and are touring now with their energetic multimedia live performance, including original Film footages of Mahatma Gandhi. 1001 Ways had international media coverage on BBC, New York Post, London to Night, Forbes TV, Asian Voice, India Digest, Culture Times, Pakistan TV, Sirus Radio to name some. 1001 Ways worked together with international artists like: Farafina (Real World), Fathy Salama (producer of 'Egypt' for Youssou N'Dour), Omega III (producer of Madonna...), Gypsy Kings, Tony Scott, Buddy Miles and Calvin Owens. 1001 Ways 2010 by Duss Rodgers (Music biz buzz) What an interesting collage of musical sounds... 1001 Ways offers up a dish of digital vibes that oddly touched me in a hell of a funky and disturbing way. Harmonica's, digital drum beats, spastic keyboards and out there vocals with enough synthetic appeal to make one wonder how it all comes together. A vibe like no other I've heard in a long time. These cats offer listeners a journey through an upbeat rave and roll right into a laid back Sade'ish mellow jazz movement with flutes and a mystical radio voice to move us through the oceans of musical madness. All in all 1001 Ways is just that! 1001 Ways to move, motivate, mellow, magnetize and when you least expect it - blast into your musical mind! Cool to a fault, these cats are not strangers to great press having received international media coverage. Hard working and musically innovative to a fault, 1001 Ways is progressively making their musically golden path in the international independent music world.
