CNCD, in collaboration with Muziekpublique, is pleased to present the release concert for the album 'Entity' by Qotob Trio. Qotob was originally formed in Damascus but a new chapter in its history is now being written in Belgium. This Brussels version of the trio with Bassel Abou Fakher on cello, Jean-Baptiste Delneuville on piano and Piet Maris on accordion plays a mixture of Middle-eastern classical music and contemporary jazz. A poetic piano, an accordion which alternates between melancholy and joy and a deep yet serene cello form a very special musical blend.
'Entity' was recorded in the Jacques Altenloh auditorium, the trio’s rehearsal space, is instrumental, cinematic and adventurous. The sound is in part an extension of the intimate, velvet ECM releases of Anouar Brahem, but is also not far in spirit from the exotic arab jazz of Rabih Abou-Khalil, Dhafer Youssef and Bachar Mar Khalifé.
The concert will be preceded by a screening of ‘Nulle part en France’, Yolande Moreau’s moving documentary about migrants in Calais and Grande-Synthe which aims to shine a light in the darkness of denial and provide a beacon in the night of ignorance. This year refugees and migration form the centrepiece of the campaign of the CNCD (the Centre National de Coopération au Développement).

Bruzz (Brussels media) chose Bassel for their "Enfant Terrible" series and made a nice video report about his journey from Syria, his life in Brussels and of course the love for his cello.

Sarah Baur made a music video for Ik en den Theo's song 'Internet' based on the illustrations she made for the Book+CD 'Ik en den Theo/Moi et le Théo'.

Sarah Baur used the Stop Motion technique in a digital environment to animate the illustration she had made for the book that accompanied the first CD.
This resulted in a fun and child friendly music video, that incorporates the full lyrics in a playful and organic way so everybody can sing along.
There's is also a Dutch version to be enjoyed.

'Internet' is a good humoured song about the frustrations that arise in children when everybody around them is absorbed in their screens.

JT schaffen den Spagat, fröhliche Partymusik mit ernsten Themen zu kombinieren, wagen sich an komplexe Rhythmen und Breaks. Das ist intelligent und spannend, aber niemals verkopft
