In addition to performing as a solo artist in a more delicate and intimate setting, accordionist Hartwin Dhoore (Siger, Viorel) loves the magic that comes from playing with other musicians. Pavel Souvandjiev (Hartwin’s cousin) grew up in a musical family and has been playing the violin since childhood. After training in classical music, he discovered, at the age of fourteen, the folk scene of which he became one of the essentials. Best known as one of the founders of the famous “Aerokorda” trio, his excellence on the violin elevates the trio’s performance to a new level. Flavia Escartin (cello) grew up on a Catalan farm surrounded by vineyards and magnificent landscapes. The influence of this environment gives her style an organic and intrepid side. But it also has Western roots! With her Belgian mother, she regularly visited her grandparents in Ghent and is currently studying in Amsterdam. Flavia often performs with her sister Laia under the name “Escarteen Sisters” and also collaborates with musicians from the jazz and world music scene. The groovy style and fluid gestures make the trio’s repertoire swing with madness.

It moves, it grooves and it swings. The new album “Li pedi” (Feet) by Nisia in trio format is dedicated to the people of dance, that part of humanity who cannot stay still when music tickles their feet, ears and heart. Whether it’s the catchy pulse of a Sicilian tarantella, the tender sway of a mazurka, or the irresistible swirl of a circus circle, the spirit of the album is that of finding the common denominator in this incredible and rich variety music to dance to. Crossing “piedi nudi” from Sicily to Belgium, the trio evokes the whole range of sensations, emotions, perfumes and memories that carry us throughout this dancing, and sometimes stumbling journey, that is life. New compositions and arrangements of traditional pieces intertwine to explore with an original and personal look link between our musical roots to our contemporary sensitivity.
