Kristal Klaar Gitaar

The guitar, jack of all trades.

The guitar has been around since +/- 1780, but has continued to evolve until 2016 and will probably in the future. The concert evening will be conducted by Bert Cools, known from a.o. Pudding oO, Hoera., Pomrad, Book of Air, Fabrizio Cassol Birds and of course the 'granvat' platform. This amazing composer and guitarist will show the guitar through a variety of styles.

Young Talent

You will be introduced to no less than five guitar players, who have already developed their own personality. The twin guitar brothers, Sebastien Wrincq and Benoit Delvaux, will perform a duo set, followed by two young top bands with tons of live experience: '2 Times Nothing' with Arto van Roey and Jorick Hens on guitar, Maurice de Clerck on saxophone, Jacob Hus on bass and Jef Cruyssaert on drums, and 'Shpoon' with Tom van De voorde on guitar, Seppe de Bleser and Creo Cristoria on saxophone and Matthijs Vandevelde on drums. Both bands will perform their own material. Get ready for a big slice of jazz, hip hop, funk, jazz, fusion, rock and blues. Let’s party!


Bert Cools is happy to present the international ensemble Merope with five musicians from five different countries: Indre Jurgeleviciute (Lithuania) – voice, kankles, Jean–Christophe Bonnafous (France) – bansuri, Bert Cools (Belgium) – guitar and effects, Marcello Windolph (Germany/Brazil) – acoustic bass and Miguel Hiroshi (Spain) – percussion.

Merope is a world alternative music band consisting of five musicians each deriving from five different universes. With each member supplying their own artistic background, the result is a unique alchemy of sounds. Merope’s music has the potential to reach wide audiences owing to its sensitivity and subtle combination of elements, the musical chemistry of the group emerges forcefully during its concerts. Their music is inspired by ancient Lithuanian songs, embraced by organic sounds, modern harmonies and extending its influence to electronic music. Merope is inspired by nature and dreams, their songs are telling stories about the connection between humans and nature.

Merope has the ability to involve the audience in a musical journey both actively and affectively, creating in this way a new ritual music for the present day.

Their first album ‘9 Days’ was created solely with solar power and recorded in the open lands of southern Spain. With the second album ‘Amaranthine’ Merope dedicate the poetic textures and the sound of their inner journeys to the waters of the world.
