about

The traditional music group Amorroma, the historical music ensemble Zefiro Torna and jazz saxophone player and flute player Philippe Laloy (Traces, Tricycle) meet in a programme imbued by the spirit of Catharism.

Amorroma
For the mediaeval "Cathares" AMOR (love) was a positive word and ROMA (Rome) as a symbol for power and oppression a negative one. Putting these words into one these musicians want to create a tension between good and bad, happy and sad, longing and content, progressive and conservative, peaceful and vehement,... It's in all these interactions that they situate their music.

Zefiro Torna
The Flemish vocal-instrumental ensemble Zefiro Torna was founded in 1996. Zefiro Torna consists of musicians who have won their spurs in ensembles such as the Huelgas ensemble, Collegium Vocale, Capilla Flamenca en Het Muziek Lod. Zefiro Torna brings the cultural heritage to life in a unique fashion, departing from a deep respect for the past. Authenticity is combined with creativity. They incorporate literature, theatre and contemporary or ethnic music in their productions. These are at times thematic, at other times strongly conceptual or experimental, always showing a strong sense of inspiration.

Traces
Since 2001 Traces is experimenting with fusioning jazz, classical and world music. The repertoire of the group balances between own compositions and new arrangements of European traditionals. Free interpretation and improvisation, essential elements of jazz, play an important role. Oriental influences lead us into a musical universe with strong melodies and enchanting rhythms.
