(Re)discover Jérome Bel’s declaration of love to the performing arts!
A colourful mix of dance lovers and professional dancers from diverse genres and cultures perform a veritable New Year’s gala.
But this gala radically questions the codes of the performing arts.
The gypsy incarnation that has developed from Jaune Toujours is called Mec Yek and Super Diver City is their latest recording.
Super Diver City contains some musical surprises: twelve tracks, nine particular arrangements of traditional Roma-songs, two songs written by singers Katia and Milka and one Amy Winehouse cover translated into Romanès. All nicely mixed together by Shazalakazoo, leading duo in Balkan Beats from Belgrade, Serbia. Also, against all expectations: Mec Yek is a gypsy band without violin.
It's available through Bandcamp or in our own webshop above.
Brussel Deze Week (now Bruzz) interviewed Mec Yek about their newest album SuperDiverCity and their views on the multicultural society.
