Folk ball Queimada

Nisia Trio, Fiston, A Contrabanda
Saturday 30 April 2022 - 19h00
Maison du Peuple de St-Gilles - 37 Parvis de St-Gilles, 1060 St-Gilles
SAT 30/04

Placed under the sign of folklore and music, the Queimada is a Muziekpublique event that should not be missed. It proposes an exceptional evening in which one participates in drinking the queimada, a potion with magical virtues that symbolizes the friendship between the musicians and the public. All of this under the sound of A Contrabanda’s Galician bagpipes…

To begin the evening, our partner Frisse Folk will initiate you in folk dancing. Two folk balls, by Nisia Trio and Fiston, will follow.

Nisia was born through the encounter of Sicilian singer Emanuela Lodato, with the Belgian bass player and singer Vincent Noiret (well known for his work with Ghalia Benal), as well as accordionist Jonathan Deneck. Singer Lodato is also an expert percussionist who plays and teaches the tambourin, the tammore, the bendir, the riqq, the Jew’s Harp and the caxixi. Noiret plays percussive guitar, glockenspiel and melodica. Jonathan Deneck is well known as the passionate accordionist of Diab Quintet and Balbuzar. During this ball, the group will present dances form Occidental Europe and from the south of Italy (the tarantella siciliana, the ballo sul tamburo, the tarantelle calabrese…)

  • Emanuela Lodato : song, percussions
  • Vincent Noiret : bass, guitar
  • Jonathan Deneck : diatonic accordion

Fiston is a brand new Brussels folk ball quintet. Its founders, François Postic (Nihil Obstat, Baila Tocamos, Au Pied Levé) and Anouk Sanczuk (Broes, Duo De Schepper-Sanczuk, Room 13 Orchestra) became friends because of their passion for Balkan music. After years of apprenticeship, they decided to create a project and to integrate fellow musicians from the Brussels Conservatory jazz department. They play personal compositions permeated
with folkloric, Balkan and jazz influences. There is no doubt that their energetic music will make you get up from your chairs.

  • François Postic : soprano and baritone saxophone
  • Anouk Sanczuk : violin
  • Guillaume Malempre : percussions
  • Téo Crommen : guitar
  • Thibaud Misson : bass
