Underground concert: Maarten Stragier + Duo Calambur + Enrico Pigozzi & Julia Szproch


The promise of multiple discoveries: that of a major heritage of Brussels, buried under the cobblestones of the Royale Square, but also unexpected musical sensations, coordinated by the flutist and musicologist Dr. Matteo Gemolo, (www.matteogemolo.com) and amplified by an exceptional environment.

A program of 3 live concerts in a palace which used to be a place enlivened with creativity.

Playing with the history of spaces and the perceptible vibrations of city traffic, Gemolo takes you far, very far from any beaten track. Because music is a medium that allows individuals to come into communion despite their differences, you will discover that the heart of Brussels keeps beating thanks to the energy of artists from all walks of life, and who have chosen to settle there.
