Bring together Tcha Limberger, Renaud Crols, Alexandre Tripodi, Renaud Dardenne and Sam Gerstmans and you have Les Violons de Bruxelles ! We are very pleased that this top five will present their new CD ‘Periple en la demeure’.
Django Reinhardt’s music is celebrated, copied, revived and immortalized worldwide but also occasionally betrayed.
The most common way to follow in the master’s footsteps is to imitate the legendary Hot Club de France Quintet (violin, solo guitar, two rhythm guitars and double bass). Les Violons de Bruxelles clearly adapted this traditional composition to their… violin.
No fewer than 3 violins color the musical interplay with the most exuberant polyphonic colors. With Tcha Limberger, the group also has a more than exceptional soloist.
The contrasting personalities of the three violinists unleash a multitude of styles and emotions on the audience. A fresh and original take on the classic gipsy swing. The new album they are presenting shows them at their best. ‘Périple en la demeure’ was recorded live in Limerlé in the south of Belgium.
