Exodus with a.o. Wouter Vandenabeele & Osama Abdulrasol

world music

Fifteen years ago, Wouter Vandenabeele performed the very first concert in the Handelsbeurs. To look back at all those years of music, he is returning with Exodus, an orchestra of musicians who are ‘on the run’.

It combines Greek blues with fiery flamenco and the musical melting pot of Aleppo.
