After many years spent deepening the classical Ottoman repertoire, it is quite naturally that Tristan Driessens (‘ûd) returns to his origins, the European folk, with his friend Robbe Kieckens (percussion). Accompanied by high-level musicians encountered during their career, Tristan and Robbe give us their interpretation of the folk ball. With the collaboration of Emre Gültekin (saz), Vardan Hovanissian (duduk), Muhittin Kemal Temel (kanun), Tom Callens (flute, bass clarinet, clarinet, saxophone), Grégory Jolivet (hurdy-gurdy), Simon Leleux (percussion) Ruben Tenembaum (violin), Vincent Noiret (double bass), Jowan Merckx (tin whistle, low whistle) and Isabelle de Spoelberch (harp).
