Alizarina is a red pigment extracted from a vegetable root: The madder of the dyers. Alizarina is lively, it moves, it’s organic, floral and poetic. Alizarina Quartet offers compositions inspired by traditional elements, a sonic epic from Brittany to Romania, sometimes infused with oriental warmth. or South American. Everything is always guided by the clarinet with klezmer and classical accents. An electronic carpet supports and energizes the acoustic timbres of the strings and wraps itself in a frank and lively rhythm. An energetic electronic sound that sublimates the acoustic, classical and traditional influences of the world, aided by poetic texts anchored in the current era.

Fri 08.10 Rebel Up @ LiNDiGo concert (La Reunion), Muziekpublique, Bxl

This friday 08.10 a special Maloya concert @ Muziekpubique by La Reunion group LiNDiGo

It has been twenty years since the group LiNDiGo, led by Olivier Araste, has been cited as one of the most popular Maloya groups. However, his approach is neither locked in nostalgia nor in the shackles of a sterile memory. Foundations serve the momentum, and roots build the future. Their motto: “When you know where you’re coming from, you know where you’re going”, their style: Maloya Power. They already have more than 1000 concerts and six albums to their credit.

On stage, their jubilant trance, as distinctive as it opens up to new horizons, contaminates all audiences. Lindigo is a love story for this dear pebble called Réunion, for its land from which rhythm springs, its sky which offers dreams and its ocean which leads to the discovery of other worlds. It is a love story for music, this maloya that unites ancestors and their grandchildren, which gives men and women the strength of pure feelings, adventure and sharing. Lindigo is generous fellowship, a celebration of life present, past and future.

Warmup & afterparty in the foyer in collaboration with Rebel Up and Drache Musicale.

Limited to 200 places, best reserve your ticket here.
