Henri Le Boefzaal
The young band from Gent will be unfolding their cristalline soundscapes and dreamy, subtle melodies on.
Considered as one of the most refined Belgian bands, admired by international media and adored by a devoted audience (whose enthusiasm contrasts with the musicians’ quasi-proverbial restraint), Amatorski are currently working on a new album, from which they’ll premiere some excepts at this concert.
They’ll perform with their new line-up, which includes an additional musician. Released in 2014, their previous album From Clay To Figures was elected by the media in the northern part of thE country as one of the best Belgian albums of the year.
Amatorski have adapted their emblematic track Come Home for the BBC series The Missing, which used it as its title tune. The series is currently aired by the RTBF and was/will be shown on TV around the world.
