Brussels Underground

Panorama_5473-5482

Coming from all the corners from the Balkans they drag their melodies in the subways, on the Sunday-morning markets, in the corridors of the railway stations… They come and they go, playing for pleasure or by necessity. Incredible talents, from generation to generation, whose music is the alchemy that turns their dented instruments into gold.

Brussels Underground brings together the best street and wedding musicians who work outside the traditional music circuit, on the streets or at wedding festivities. The difficult economic circumstances in their own countries led many street musicians to emigrate. Some were well-known soloists in their own countries, with extensive careers behind them. Without any management, and sometimes without a clear status, they play on the streets, in the metro, and for associations they are members of. The ‘wedding musicians’ confirm Europe’s current migration movements: they are new nomads who move around at the demand of emigrated communities.

Without being able to represent all cultures, the music of this project encompasses a vast region, from Moldavia to Timisoara, from Istanbul to Skopje via Sofia, gathered together in the capital of Europe.
