Between past and present, Molenbeek cemetery will witness a unique musical ceremony, mystical and shamanic. The traditional music of Mongolia will get in touch with the departed through the medium of their amazing vocal techniques. Throat-singing, together with violins and lutes, so typical of this part of the world, will resound in the central pavilion of the grave galleries of Molenbeek cemetery, a remarkable architectural ensemble, freshly renovated, that we owe to Joseph Praet. The Egschiglen group interprets music and song from Mongolia and Central Asia. Their performance, spanning both buddhist and shamanic traditions, impresses by the diversity and the modernity that they inject into this age-old heritage.
