Bal & Basta is back for all folk dance lovers! For this return, we propose an outing with *Les Botinnes Artistiques*, followed by *Broes*.

The violinist Pavel Souvandjev and the accordionist Guus Herremans of Les Bottines Artistiques present a dynamic and refined bal folk. The French and Italian playing technique of Guus and Pavel’s Bulgarian roots result in a surprising musical palette, which allowed them to already give numerous performances in Belgium and abroad.

Broes has explored many musical paths in the world of folk music and have acquired an impressive number of accolades. In the same year the band was formed, the internet site “Folkroddels” crowned Broes as “Best Newcomer of the Year”. In 2013 they were the winners of Dranouterrally, the biggers folk and world music festival of Belgium. They have toured throughout China two years in a row and even made it to Belarus, International folklore festival.

Their compositions are peppered with a love for gypsy, jazz, balkan, folk and Latin music. Danceable and energetic feel-good music with room for improvisation: that’s Broes’s business card.

Frisse Folk also organises a dance workshop on Sunday afternoon

With the support of the Dutch-speaking Affairs Service of the Saint-Gilles municipality.

ATTENTION, for this concert you will be asked to present a covid safe ticket in addition to the concert ticket.
