Secret Garden: Naima Joris
Intimate concerts in an imaginary courtyard
The Handelsbeurs opens its doors to the public again! Dive into the summer together with a series of intimate concerts. The concert hall transforms into a green oasis for the occasion, complete with plant jungle, softly singing birds and subdued lighting. Welcome to the Secret Garden of Ghent.
Think of Electro-Shock Blues, One Last Laugh In A Place Of Dying and Skeleton Tree and you know that grieving the loss of a loved one often produces brilliant art. They are often black-rimmed, intense songs that try to give a place to the pain and sorrow. Fragile and personal stories that strike a universal chord and from which you as a listener can draw comfort, understanding and strength.
Naima Joris' debut EP says a lot with few words. Five pure songs reduced to the core. Songs that are sparse with language and sound and that do not shy away from silence. That is precisely why they come in all the louder.
The Secret Garden concerts have limited capacity due to corona. What do you still have to take into account? View the covid rules of the Handelsbeurs.
