Yôkaï + Fondry
Eight Brusselaars present their second record with dark, warm, delicate and yum yum groovy sounds.
Yôkaï is boasting a line-up of 8 multi-instrumentalists out of jazz, rock & improvisation scenes. Their music travels through delicate compositions, hypnotic grooves and coarse improvisations, exposing the audience to a novel blend of jazz, ethnic music and psychedelia.
Hard to pigeonhole, Yokai’s music manages to find a fresh spot between ethio-jazz, Ennio Morricone’s soundtracks, 70’s psych-rock and french composer François de Roubaix subtle harmonies.
This concert will be celebrating the release of their second album “Coup de Grace” on the Brussels label Humpty Dumpty Records.
Fondry is composed of Diego Leyder (BRNS, Dièze, Namdose), Nicholas Yates (Thomas Champagne Trio, Samir Barris, One Horse Land) and Romain Benard (Ropoporose, Primevère, Paradoxant, Namdose). This trio plays improvisations inspired by post punk, sound design and pop. Each time completely different!
