Tickets: Early Birds: € 25

23—25 nov 2017

Early Bird tickets

4th edition of the notorious Eastern Daze-festival, aka KRAAK & Vooruit’s back and forth game between (not so) non-western traditional music and avant-garde. This year’s edition will take over 3 places — Vooruit, KASK cinema and TramZwart — and the first names confirmed are Richard Dawson (+ full band), Asiq Nargile and Jericho. For the early birds, we have 50 3-day tickets in discount at € 25.

Richard Dawson
The International press is already raving about Dawson’s new record ‘Peasant’. The album is a proper concept record about a small medieval community under pressure by higher powers. Exclusively for the festival Dawson will present the record for the first time with full band for the Belgian audience.

Asiq Nargile
Born in Tbilisi and now based in the Borcali region of Southern Georgia, Nargile Mehtiyeva aka Asiq Nargile has been playing saz (long-neck lute) and singing since the age of 15. Fluent in Azerbaijani, Georgian, and Russian, Nargile represents the cosmopolitan heritage of old Tbilisi, a city once known as a meeting point for multilingual aşıq bards who would travel through the region serving as conduits for news, ideas, music and culture. A powerful solo performer, her vocal recital of epic folk poetry is by turns ecstatic and deeply expressive, and is interspersed with bursts of virtuosic, highly ornamented saz.

Jéricho is the new project of Yann Gourdon, the master and inventor of his highly personal mix of Tony Conrad and Occitan folk. With Jéricho, he expands this territorium to a more pulsating and more song-based approach. The double LP, out on Aguirre Record, is one of previous year’s highlights!
