SUN 15/03

Get some dance experience during the first Bal & Basta of 2020 with the two great bands Les Bottines Artistiques and Snaarmaarwaar!


The violinist Pavel Souvandjev and the accordionist Guus Herremans of Les Bottines Artistiques present a dynamic and refined bal folk. The French and Italian playing technique of Guus and Pavel’s Bulgarian roots result in a surprising musical palette, which allowed them to already give numerous performances in Belgium and abroad.


Snaarmaarwaar is an adventurous power folk trio that navigates on the cutting line of old and new folk. You will see a trio, but what you will hear instead is an explosive sextet on speed that make their acoustic instruments roar effortlessly in an impressive wall of sound. Jeroen Geerinck, with his pumping and energetic guitar playing, is the turbo engine of the trio, the cosy twin-seater where mandola-player Maarten Decombel and Ward Dhoore on the mandolin can sit comfortably. Their playing together and interaction is compact, their music to the point and their vision contemporary.
