Yonatan Hes Trio
Meeting Franco-Catalan bassist Basile Rahola and Lyon native drummer Oscar George at the Koninklijk Conservatorium of Brussels, Burgundian-American saxophonist Yonatan Hes decides to experiment with his compositions in a trio format. A strong connection blooms between the three musicians, with a shared sense of melody, rhythm and playful interaction. Influenced by the New York straight-ahead swing and the European jazz scene, these young musicians brew a bright and vigorous juice.
Maison Communale de Koekelberg
Place Henri Vanhuffel 6, 1081 Koekelberg
Koekelberg is the smallest municipality in the Brussels region as far as population goes. Still, its grand Basilica of the Sacred Heart is one of the largest Roman Catholic churches in the world. The Henri Vanhuffelplein / Place Henri Vanhuffel is a popular meeting place for its inhabitants. The 4-metre high majestic sculpture by Annie Jungers "Ontmoeting" (meaning: Encounter) on the square could not have been named better.
