The month of May is our "art month". This time, our music has been accompained by the andalusian ambiance from EDIFICIO's Hotel Wielemans. Hotel Wielemans is a charming, picturesque venue that delights guests with its Hispano-Moresque design from the Art Deco period (1925). A unique concert at a unique place in Brussels. www.edificio.be
MAY. 15 DE BONSKI'S
Do you already know De Bonski's? We have had the pleasure to be recording a song for their new CD! Probably most French speaking people know "A la Claire Fontaine", but...Can you imagine it sung in Dutch? So, whether you are curious of the result, or you are learning Dutch and want to do it in a very international way, this will be a must buy CD. Different foreigners living in Belgium will take part in the project, singing well known international songs in Dutch. Follow De Bonski's on Facebook!
MAY. 11 CONCERT AMONG PAINTINGS
In May we have had the honour to play at Espace Art Gallery in Brussels at a very special concert. Public and musicians where sourounded by paintings from Philippe Louguet - Traces Projetees, resulting in a musical explosion of colours for everyone in the Gallery. www.espaceartgallery.be.
A small moment from the concert can be found here.
APR. 23 ROSES, LOVE & BOOKS
One of the nicest days in Catalonia is St George's Day, called Sant Jordi in Catalan. Roses and Books become the center of attention every 23rd of April, when men give a rose to their lovers and women offer a book to theirs. Or women receive also books...Or men receive also roses! Why not? For this year, we also have our proposal: offer our CD 'Made in Brux', fresh as a rose and durable as a book. Love comes included in the music!
MAR. 26 MORE THAN ST PATRICK'S
The month of March has been very intensive! We played at Rusthuis Alexius in Tienen, at Micromarche for the Bienvenus a Bruxelles Festival and in other different places to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day. We had the oportunity to open the exhibition of the 'Irish in Europe' at Halles Sain Gery and also play at a powerful concert night at La Porte Noire. Furthermore we were invited for the second year in a row by the Old Oak to play during the Pre-Parade Breakfast! To be honest, Saint Patrick keeps us in form for the rest of the year! Here you have a small video of the big day.
