MUZIEKPUBLIQUE: THE HEART OF FOLK AND WORLD MUSIC AND TRADITIONAL DANCE IN BRUSSELS
The not-for-profit association Muziekpublique keeps music and dance traditions alive and kicking in Brussels through an ambitious programme of concerts, courses, and projects.
We bring artists and members of the public together in a spirit of enjoyment, discovery and respect for cultural diversity.
A year-round concert programme, featuring Belgian and international artists, forms the core of the foundation’s activities. From the contemplative to the madly festive, concerts take place indoors and outdoors, around the city and throughout the year.
Muziekpublique members receive many benefits including a substantial discount on ticket prices. By becoming a member you can also access a remarkable programme of courses, where you can learn authentic folk dances from many corners of Europe, and how to play a wide range of traditional European, African and oriental instruments.
Muziekpublique is the musical home of local performers including members of Tamala, Las Lloronas, Jawa, Toasaves, Refa / Refugees for Refugees, Voxtra, Vardan Hovanissian & Emre Gültekin, A Contrabanda.
