De Beren Gieren Japan Tour
De Beren Gieren, an adventurous jazz trio from Belgium, embarks on their first tour of Japan. This trio is composed by Fulco Ottervanger on piano, Lieven Van Pée on double bass and Simon Segers on drums. Fulco and Simon are using effects on their acoustic instruments, playing within the mix between modified sounds and acoustic sounds. This is giving a true avant-garde and psychedelic aspect to their music. Beside of that, their compositions are really melodic and poetic, that’s giving to their music a really original and sentimental dimension. Their last album, Dug out Skyscrapers, won the Klara Award 2017 in the ‘best Belgian Jazz album’ category.
