World Dance was created during rehearsals for the Ethnicity tour. One day during a rehearsal break, Yanni was at the sound boards talking to someone. Dan Landrum, our hammer dulcimer player for that tour, was messing around and started playing a bit of the Irish piece called The Temperance Reel. One by one other musicians joined in. Yanni stopped what he was doing, turned around and said "It's in the show." So after some fine tuning we got the wonderful adaptation of this old Irish classic!
