15:00 – 16:00

(Désolé pas de traduction disponible / Sorry, geen vertaling beschikbaar)

The East-West Ensemble plays traditional music originating in the West and the East, as well as music stemming from everywhere in between. The melodies are learned by ear in a structured manner while we explore the typical style in which they are played, their ornaments and their accompaniments. We focus on the way we perform together as a group, while improvising. We mix elements from different traditions.

Shalan Alhamwy and Jonas Malfliet play together in the Damast Duo, of which they will soon present the first album, containing traditional music from countries spanning from Syria to Belgium.
