Belgian jazz to grace Vietnamese diplomatic anniversary
Acclaimed Belgian jazz band Tricycle are to perform two concerts in Vietnam to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Belgium, reports VietnamNet. The concerts will take place on March 18 at the Ho Chi Minh City Theatre and at the Hanoi Opera House on March 19. Tricycle, led by accordionist Tuur Florizoone (pictured), have quickly become one of the hottest jazz bands in Belgium and Europe. In 2008, Florizoone won the People’s Choice Award at the World Soundtrack Awards for the film Moscow, Belgium. Tricycle’s line-up also includes Vincent Noiret on bass and Philipe Laloy on flute and saxophone.
