The Festival d’Art joins forces again with Muziekpublique in order to put together this musical stroll. The left riverbank of the Meuse is filled with hidden and unknown corners. We embark you on a stroll, punctuated by three short concerts, each lasting 30 minutes. Three amazing locations will open their doors to you during one afternoon. Choose your starting point when you book your ticket (one of the three locations), but don’t worry, you will go to all three locations thanks to our volunteers who will accompany you from one concert to another.
Originally from Ghana, Nana Osei-Twum discovers the seperewa harp at a very young age, a unique and rare instrument, from the ngoni family and the kora, with a magnificent sound. In his performances, he also blends the subtle mbira (thumb piano) with his percussions such as the thigh calabash (adenkum) and the water drum, the Ghanaian percussion box and the bamboo percussion. Nana Osei is also a great storyteller who takes his audience on an exciting musical journey filled with music and anecdotes and who wishes to share the seperewa music from Ghana.
This concert will take place at the Saint-Hilaire train station.
Peixe e Limão is a new acoustic trio made up of Flavia Clementi singing, Thomas Van Bogaert playing the guitar and Federico Bragetti playing the cello. They offer a wide range of operatic music from the south in various languages and depict a journey throughout South America, Italy, France, Spain… A world of sweet melodies and danceable southern grooves, accompanied by fresh fish and lemon!
This concert will take place in the garden of Saint Pierre’s church if the weather is nice. If it rains, it will take place inside the church.
The trio Yuşan Zillya tells an incredible story in its own right. The story of an oppressed people, the Crimean Tatars, and musical encounters that arise in exile.
After being forced to leave their home region, Crimea, because of its annexation in 2014, the multi-instrumentalist and musicologist Djemil Karikov and his daughter, a cello player, Nial Khalilova, emigrated to Lviv where they met the singer Natalia Rybka-Parkhomenko. Together, they developed the “Yuşan-Zillya” project that musically unites two cultures, two languages and two people. Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar folk songs are mixed with poems by Turkish singer and poet Aşik Veysel, and the music lives on. But in 2022, Ukraine is invaded. Djemil Karikov then fled to Belgium where he now lives and continues to share his music and his knowledge. This concert brings together again the three artists, who continue their musical journey despite the unstable situation caused by the war.
This concert will take place at the Saint-Quirin chapel.
