War In My Mind video from Natural Fusion Project

The Natural Fusion ProjectWhen musical friends get together to experiment without preconceptions, interesting and unexpected outcomes can be the result.

Such is the case with The Natural Fusion Project, a two-year-old effort that came from a pair of Slovak artists looking to merge their musical approaches. One, Richard Cifersky, was a noted contemporary banjo player, and the other, Peter Luha, an internationally-recognized electric guitarist.

Both are virtuosic instrumentalists, with their own ideas about original music. Together it’s a unique sound, with Peter combining his distinctive slap guitar rhythm with Richard’s roll-oriented banjo.

Here’s video of one of the tunes they’ve recorded, one of Richard’s called War In My Mind.


More video examples of their tunes can be found on The Natural Fusion Project web site.
