« VOCI. Italiens d’exportation »

The Music Village Rue des Pierres 50 Steenstraat, Brussels, Belgium

Italian songwriting festival
 

The festival will present on the stage of the Music Village, one of the most beautiful, historical, innovative and attractive clubs in Brussels, some of the best singer-songwriters of the Italian music panorama.

We start on the 15th April with SETAK, true name, Nicola Pomponi, a songwriter from the region of Abruzzo, center of Italy.

SETAK writes and sings in the dialect of his region, he sings in "dialetto abruzzese ''.

Ballads of intense interior introspection that combine the Abruzzo dialect with international sounds, giving a new look to the dialect, completely emptying it of the folklore that usually distinguishes it.

A performance that will take you on a long journey from the Tirrenean sea to the high fascinating mountains of the Abruzzo Apennines.

Setak will perform in duo with nazareno Pomponi.

A TRIBUTE TO SONNY ROLLINS TRIO + Jazz Jam Session

The Music Village Rue des Pierres 50 Steenstraat, Brussels, Belgium

VINCENT MARDENS (TENOR SAXOPHONE),
SAL LA ROCCA (UPRIGHTBASS),
JAN DE HAAS (DRUMS)

 

It's shaping up to be an exciting jazz night at the Music Village  with Sal La Rocca on bass, Jan De Haas on drums, and Vincent Mardens on saxophone…

Putting the spotlight on the rhythm section, the absence of guitar and piano promises an authentic experience, allowing the wind players to really shine.

Walking in the footsteps of Sonny Rollins is a bold challenge, but be sure these guys would create a captivating vibe for jazz enthusiasts.

Plus, kicking off the second part of the evening with a jam session adds a cool touch of spontaneity and creativity to the mix.

A look at the Balkans
 

Alice Riberolles (trombone), Federico Milone (alto saxophone),
Joseph Nowell (piano), Robert Jukič (double bass),

The new quintet of the Slovenian bassist/composer is an eclectic group of fearless explorers all coming from a similar musical background but taking their individual paths in various directions. They are connected by Robert's compositions which are rooted in the tradition of jazz but are at the same time looking at the balkans and contemporary eclectic musical practices. An evening of strong melodic and rhythmic content with adventoruos improvisations, a combination of fierce altoism, deep rooted trombonism, harmonic explorations and grooves.

JEAN-LUC PAPPI & FRAJILL

The Music Village Rue des Pierres 50 Steenstraat, Brussels, Belgium

TRIBUTE TO DUKE ELLINGTON
 

Frajill (vocals), Jean-Luc Pappi (piano), Bart Borremans (sax),
Chris Mentens (bass), Bruno Castellucci (drums)

 

These virtuoso, passionate musicians and the talented young singer Frajill will be playing Duke Ellington's well-known and lesser-known standards, those most representative of his sense of swing (It Dont Mean a Thing, Take The "A" Train...) and the sensuality of his ballads (Sophisticated Lady, In My Solitude...), which are still a must for all jazz musicians.

 

"Jazz is all music", Duke Ellington's famous phrase, full of truth and meaning, illustrates the extent to which he understood the richness of the crossbreeding of cultures (blues, gospel, Latin, jungle, classical music), which can be found in his music and which would open up the many paths of modernity after him.

He was an innovator who didn't hesitate to write jazz suites for big band with orchestration worthy of Maurice Ravel!

Soulful latin Band
 

Oljana Weyler (vocals), Koen Wauters (guitar),
Steven Van Gool (bass), Stoffel Verlackt (drums), Juan Carlos Rosquete (sax)

 

Passion by the pool..

It could be the title of a novel, but in fact it’s what Oljana Weyler and Koen Wauters felt when they met in Italy during a workshop organized by Berklee, College of Music.

It has been proven that love & music can be an energizing combination.

So, next to writing their own music under the name of “Jane Spleen”, Oljana & Koen soon discovered that, next to their jobs as music teachers, most of all they wanted to play music, while discovering the world.

Soon, they began to see that playing music could  take them wherever they wanted to go…

For the last 5 years, GetSomeWine performed concerts in more than 10 countries, inside and outside Europe.

Inspired by those travels around the world, they started longing for their own soulful latin band, so they surrounded themselves with other musicians and started rehearsing…

Italian songwriting festival
 

"VOCI. Italiens d'exportation"

The festival will present on the stage of the Music Village, one of the most beautiful, historical, innovative and attractive clubs in Brussels, some of the best singer-songwriters of the Italian music panorama.

Roberta Carrieri is a sign songwriter and excellent ventriloquist. She was born in south Italy, in Puglia, and then she moved to Milan. She has been living for about 3 years in Athens where she has many interesting collaborations with Greek musicians and artists.

 

She comes from a strong theatrical background and it is this visual experience that she translates into songs where words, which are more evocative than narratives, paint a very personal and at times ironic landscape.

Often playing alone, one voice and a guitar, her simplicity both charms and disarms the audience.

Nicolas Dewalque (guitar/arrangement)

 

 

Whether you're a fan of jazz, baroque or electronic music, I think it's safe to say that we've all fallen in love with a piece of pop music.

Jamiroquai, Radiohead, The Beatles, Michael Jackson,... They'll all be on hand to help you rediscover your favorite pop standards.

Hetty Kate Trio

The Music Village Rue des Pierres 50 Steenstraat, Brussels, Belgium

"Treasures of The American Songbook"

Hetty Kate (Vocals), Maxime Moyaerts (Piano),
Victor Foulon (Double Bass)

 

"When Hetty Kate takes the stage you can’t help but notice. She  has a stage presence only matched by the clarity

of her voice – couple this with her dedication to music that swings,  and you have the jazz musician’s singer.” – James Morrison Multi-Instrumentalist (AU)

 

For these intimate concerts, British/Australian jazz vocalist Hetty Kate  has invited celebrated musicians, pianist Maxime Moyaerts and bassist Victor Foulon to join her. As the trio explores classics and curiosities from the swing, cool jazz and bop eras you'll discover the joys of the jazz trio, a simplicity allowing each musician, and importantly, each song to shine.

 

"Like Peggy Lee on a Vespa" Marc Myers, Jazzwax Magazine (USA)

 

Described as "the real deal" and "one of the best swing singers on the  scene today", jazz singer Hetty Kate has been pursuing an impressive international career for over a decade. From intimate clubs to the most prestigious stages such as The Sydney Opera House, Hetty's career has taken her all over the world, from New Zealand to New York.

 

With her clear voice and remarkable intonation, reminiscent of the singers of the 1950s, Hetty Kate swings the beautiful songs of the American Songbook - from Gershwin to Dameron, from swing to bop. You'll notice that Hetty "honors the composer" by staying true to the message and melody of his composition, and uses improvisation in a way that never interferes with the lyrics. It is this rare quality and a compelling ease on stage that has attracted the attention of musicians and audiences the world over.

 

Over the course of her career, Hetty has released ten critically acclaimed albums and performed at many festivals including the New York Winter Jazz Festival (USA), the Sapporo Jazz Festival (Japan), the Prague Proms (Czech Republic), the Melbourne, Sydney and Perth International Jazz Festivals (Australia), the Cavell Leitch International Jazz Festival (New Zealand), the

Peniscola Jazz Festival (Spain), the Piacenza Jazz Festival (Italy). Hetty also toured extensively with award-winning Australian jazz musician James Morrison for many years, notably as the featured vocalist  on his symphonic concert (Europe/Asia/Australia) entitled "The A to Z of Jazz".

After researching into the repertoire of the great Fred Hersch, Enrico Pieranunzi and Keith Jarrett, It became very important to try and put down on paper all the inspiration they provided.

Tribute to Benny Goodman

The Music Village Rue des Pierres 50 Steenstraat, Brussels, Belgium

Peter Verhas (Clarinet), René Harvengt (Vibraphone),
Paul Bourdiaudhy (Drums), Stijn Wouters (piano),
Stefan Willems (Bass)

 

Benny Goodman learned clarinet at his synagogue, bolstered by two years of classical training. He made his professional debut at 12 and became part of the rich Chicago jazz scene, steeped in the music of New Orleans. Goodman first recorded in 1926 and spent several years as a first-call musician in New York. His 1934 band was broadcast on the popular “Let’s Dance” radio show which aired coast to coast. An otherwise unsuccessful tour in 1935 ended in a smash hit in Los Angeles where the audience went wild. Thus, it is said, swing was born and Goodman became its name  King of Swing  !

As a composer Goodman contributed to ”Stompin’ at the Savoy,” “Seven Come Eleven,” “Air Mail Special,” “Flying Home,” “Don’t Be That Way,” ”Lullaby in Rhythm,” “If Dreams Come True,” and “Soft Winds.”

Goodman also helped racial integration in America. In the early 1930s, black and white jazz musicians could not play together in most clubs or concerts. In the Southern states, racial segregation was enforced by law. Benny Goodman broke with tradition by hiring Teddy Wilson to play with him and drummer Gene Krupa in the Benny Goodman Trio. In 1936, he added Lionel Hampton on vibes to form the Benny Goodman Quartet.
