Uma Chine: 'Changes'

Uma Chine is a gigantic woman who sends magical-realistic stories out into the world. In this short yet spectacular set for children, they will find themselves floating in dreamy piano soundscapes and layered voices.

OOR foresaw this as a “Wonderful debut”, while Focus Knack, amongst others, has also praised the group's frontwoman Nele De Gussem. HUMO put Uma Chine forward as "one of the unmissable acts for 2020", landing the band in the finals of Humo's Rock Rally that year.

The group has already performed in Belgium for an aftershow of dEUS and actively touring abroad in the Netherlands, Germany, France and Switzerland since the release of their debut.
