Melanie de Biasio
NEW COMPOSITION BLACKENED CITIES
Much lauded since the release of No Deal, her second album in 2014, Melanie De Biasio is pleased to announce details of a new composition Blackened Cities.
Revered in her native Belgium and often refereed to as the Belgian Billie Holiday, the classically trained flautist and vocalist was heralded by Gillies Peterson on the release of No Deal as one of the most exciting artists in the jazz world. A series of reworkings from various artists curated by Peterson resulted in the acclaimed No Deal Remixed album.
Together with long-term musical associates, pianist Pascal Mohy, Pascal Paulus on vintage synths, Samuel Gerstmans on double bass and drummer Dre Palllemaerts, Blackened Cities continues to see De Biasio mine an extraordinary vein of immersive spendour.
This concert evening will not only be about the new project, but also will Melanie De Biasio be guiding you through a selection of songs from her previous album No Deal.
Melanie De Biasio (voice, flute), Pascal Mohy (piano), Pascal Paulus (vintage synths/backing vocals), Sam Gerstmans (bass), Dré Pallemaerts (drums)
