BRUSSELS JAZZ WEEKEND: BOGGAMASTA & GLÜ
Thrilling free concerts, global avant-garde trance!
Funk/Soul Jazz World
A free double-bill within the Brussels Jazz Weekend. First the mega-craziness of Boggamasta, followed by that giga-Glü excursion (but with a bit more Boggamasta interaction!?).
David Bovée was the very first Flat Earth Society (FES) guitarist, who left the band after four years to go all out for his very own (prized by the BBC) ‘Think of One’. whether it was the polyglot melting pot with music with throat singers from Greenland, Gnawa musicians from Morocco, or Brazilian virtuosos. Peter Vermeersch is the composer and bandleader of Flat Earth Society, a 15-member band that is known for its runaway sound. Amongst other things, Vermeersch was also the producer of the first dEUS album, wrote the music for Rosas dances Rosas and was the founder and driving force of X-Legged Sally.
For Boggamasta, Vermeersch and Bovée write an exuberant repertoire together and present their own direct, energetic and irrepressible music: sizzling, with drive, groove and lots of electro.
With: David Bovée (electric guitar, vocals & electronics), Peter Vermeersch (bass clarinet, vocals & electronics), Pierre Vervloesem (electric bass), Kristof Roseeuw (double bass &violin), Peter Vandenberghe (keyboards & piano), Teun Verbruggen (drums & drumpads), Wim Segers (percussion), Berlinde Deman (tuba & vocals), Benjamin Boutreur (alto sax), Michel Mast (tenor sax), Bruno Vansina (baritone sax & flute), Bart Maris (trumpet), Thomas Mayade (trumpet), Peter Delannoye (trombone), Marc Meeuwissen (trombone), Marti Melià (tenor sax).
'Raw diamond discovered in Brussel's underground scene, GLÜ is a hybrid electronic machine. Connected by kilometers of cables, four musicians and a Vj brew electronic, drum&bass & break-core into a living world… To be heard. To be seen. To be felt.'
With: Martin Daniel, François Gaspard, Fede Pecoraro, Martin Méreau, Charles Bruere.
