Field Recordings, percussion, electronic spice and acoustic instruments. These are the ingredients chosen to create the perfect Belgian Bolivian.

His didactic study for percussion and rhythm was the focus of his new album “La Hoja de Eucalipto” that brings alive a more active and aggressive part of Susobrino.

The Bolivian Indiana Jones presented his first serene EP “Mapajo” in 2018. An EP fully made of his field recording trip to Bolivia. In this EP, you can hear traditional music instruments such as quena and charrango. Susobrino explores the sounds of his bolivian roots while combining them to modern electronica, thus highlighting their rhythms.

Brussels based Global Sounds powerhouse “Rebel Up Records” will be officially releasing the new album in Belgium after the summer.

FOREST ABBEY

Forest Abbey was a Benedictine Abbey founded in 1105, beside a creek, a tributary of the Zenne, southwest of the city of Brussels, Belgium in the municipality of Forest.

The abbots of Affligem Abbey, which had been the ecclesiastical owners of the parish since the bishop of Cambrai ceded it to them in 1105, decided to build a priory for women in Forest, which would eventually become Forest Abbey. The first prioress was named in 1239. Also in the 13th century, the Romanesque church of Saint Denis was rebuilt in the newer Gothic style. The neighbouring abbey church was rebuilt in the 15th century.

Relics of Saint Alena, whose cult was popular in the region, were formerly kept both in the parish church and in the abbey church, but since 1796 only in the parish church.

Much of the abbey was destroyed by fire on 26 March 1764.The abbey was suppressed on 8 October 1796 and sold the following year. The buildings that survived the dismantling are now owned by the Brussels municipality of Forest, and are used as a cultural centre for seminars, banquets and exhibitions. The Abbey and the site were classified as a historical monument in 1994.

L’ABBAYE DE FOREST

L’abbaye de Forest fut fondée en 1106, au bord d’un ruisseau, à 5 km au sud de la ville de Bruxelles. Durant un siècle, la communauté a habité le prieuré en demeurant sous l’autorité de l’abbé d’Afflighem. En 1239, la première abbesse de Forest fut élue. Dames et jeunes filles des meilleures familles de l’aristocratie et de la haute bourgeoisie se joignaient à la communauté, qui bénéficiait donc de donations et de dots permettant de faire des acquisitions. L’abbaye bénédictine fonctionnait alors comme une petite ville en autarcie.

À partir de la fin du xve siècle, les troubles ont commencé. Le conflit armé opposant Charles VIII, roi de France, et Maximilien d’Autriche a affecté l’abbaye. Une centaine d’années plus tard, les conflits avec la France, sous le règne de Louis XIV, ont occasionné de nouvelles destructions et plus tard des renovations, enfin à la suite de la Révolution française, elle fut supprimée et vendue.

Les bâtiments qui ont survécu au démantèlement forment aujourd’hui un centre culturel pour séminaires, banquets et expositions appartenant à la commune bruxelloise de Forest. L’abbaye et le site sont classés comme monument historique en 1994.

ABDIJ VAN VORST

In 1105 kreeg Fulgence, de abt van Affligem, de Sint-Denijskerk van Odon, de bisschop van Kamerijk, die toen over de regio heerste. Het jaar erop schonk de kasteelheer van Brussel, Franco d’Aa, een aangrenzend terrein aan Fulgence. Fulgence richtte een vrouwengemeenschap op, die behoorde tot de abdij van Affligem.

In 1238, na heel wat moeilijkheden en veel discussies, werd de priorij van Vorst onafhankelijk en in augustus 1239 werd de eerste abdis aangesteld.
De “Gemeenschap van Adellijke Benedictijnse Dames van Vorst” bestond uit adellijke en/of rijke nonnen die hun persoonlijke eigendommen overdroegen bij hun intrede in het klooster, waardoor de gemeenschap snel kon uitgroeien, onder andere door de aankoop van gronden of gebouwen in de naburige plaatsen…

De gebouwen die de ontmanteling hebben overleefd, zijn nu een cultureel centrum voor seminaries, banketten en tentoonstellingen van de Brusselse gemeente Vorst. De abdij en de site werden in 1994 geklasseerd als historisch monument.
