A Handelsbeurs production

One of the key figures of the contemporary jazz scene, the American trumpeter Dave
Douglas, presents the brand new composition Secular Psalms. He derived inspiration from
Van Eyck and the zeitgeist of the Middle Ages. 

From the emergence of polyphony in the work of Guillaume Dufay to the emotional tragedies surrounding the plague. On top of this he has been greatly inspired by the latest events, meaning corona and Black Lives Matter. He has put together an international, eclectic sextet for this performance.

A production of Handelsbeurs in coproduction with Jazz Brugge, November Music and Jazz fest Berlin with the support of The City of Ghent and Baloise Insurance.


Secular Psalms
Dave Douglas (USA - trumpet), Tomeka Reid (USA - cello), Antoine Pierre (BE - drums), Marta Warelis (PL - piano, harmonium), Frederik Leroux (BE - guitars, lute, banjo), Berlinde Deman (BE - tuba, serpent, voice)
