CROLLES/in Uncategorized/by sgrootaers
CROLLES, ” it’s two women who trip on the beat, with music and chic muses “.
Leïla and Amandine are both actresses, singers, live in Brussels and have crolles.
The duet was born during the second confinement, when, already used to mixing their voices and to find an obviousness in it, they realize that they have both notebooks blackened with texts in gestation: poems, slam, songs which only ask to be born. Composing a set that they could share in the living rooms of their loved ones suddenly becomes vital. They leave for Switzerland for a first residency in January 2021.
Since then, they continue to beat the iron (since it is boiling hot), to write songs, to give concerts in private and public spaces. They play in Belgium, but also in Switzerland and France.
What they privilege is an intimate encounter with the public that allows a capella both in the music and in the silences, a feeling of deep exchange, a time to vibrate together, essential moments of magic.

The exotic & the eccentric become the danceable and the accessible. Is that weird? – Yes but actually No.
The spiritual trance becomes the erotic sensuality. Is that appropriate? – No but in fact Yes.
The melancholic modest mood becomes the instinctively wild outburst of energy. Is that sane? – Yes but also very Desirable.
Deli Teli/in Uncategorized/by sgrootaers
This is the music that set the Athenian nights alight at a time when Saint-Tropez was rocking to the sound of Yéyé. Mixing, with a subtle dose of Mediterranean melodrama, the hits of this mythical era with a 60’s rock sound, Deli Teli preach a collective, sensual and solar wiggle on the dance floors of the rest of the world.
Amami/in Uncategorized/by sgrootaers
Like a lost gem of a retro-futurist soundtrack or a dusty trap song from outer space. Just listen to IVORY to catch the vibe: furious claps, deep kick, melow synth and soulful vocals. Drum machines and madness are the two feet they stand on. So free your mind and just dive into this post-tribal dance. As three face of the same coin, Raphaël Anker (Imperial Tiger Orchestra), Gab Gebrezghi (Ghostape, Tapes Adventures, Uberreel) and Ines Mouzoune will catch you on their spinning game, and you’ll not stay indemn. The band’s debut EP Giant was released on Bongo Joe Records on September 20th 2019
Lou K/in Uncategorized/by sgrootaers
From confidence to rebellion, Lou K’s songs explore multiple forms of expression through an airy and melancholic rock.
Lou K, initially a solo project of the multi-disciplinary artist Lucie Lefauconnier, invests a strange space, when it becomes impossible to speak. So that underground stories take on another form.
Lou K is now accompanied by three musicians met at the Secrètes Sessions organised by Francofaune in September 2020: Alice Vande Voorde (La Chiva Gantiva, Kùzylarsen), Leslie Gutierrez (Pega) and Thècle Joussaud (Lylac, Jonathan Bénisty).
