MetX organises new jam session @ Floreo on June 12
MetX goes on tour in Brussels. Together with several cultural partners, we organise open jam sessions on various locations throughout the city. You can join other musicians, both professionals and amateurs, and tune in to a mix of various musical genres.
Our next jam will take place at Café Floreo on June 12. The musicians of AGO! Benin Brass, who are currently touring throughout Belgium, will introduce the session. Read more about the program and practicalities on the facebookevent.
Third MetX Jam Supreme in a row
The previous jam organised by MetX took place on March 21 at Zinnema. Nicolas Hauzeur (Brussels Balkan Orchestra), Laurent Blondiau, Jo Zanders, Esinam Dogbatse and Michel Massot took us on a jamtastic journey, mixing music from the Balkans, belching brass and (North-)African rhythms. And off course, Luc Mishalle, Jean Gnonlonfoun and our Anderlecht-based beninese brass band Ander Brass also jammed along.
Each session is being introduced by members of our MetX Jam Supreme Team. Sax player Luc Mishalle (Marockin’ Brass, Remork & Karkaba, AGO! Benin Brass) and trumpet player Laurent Blondiau (MikMâäk, Mâäk Quintet) amongst others, but also Jo Zanders (VelotroniX, BRUiTAL), Mohamed Saïd Akasri (Remork & Karkaba, Gnawa de Bruxelles) or Jean Gnonlonfoun (Marockin’ Brass, Ander Brass, AGO! Benin Brass). Together with guest musicians, they propose an accessible yet challenging repertoire that will get everybody jamming.
The MetX Jam Supreme series originates from the Megafonix Jam Supreme, our festive start of 2019. By means of these sessions, we want to lit up the boroughs of our quirky capital together with our cultural partners. Would you like to learn more about this initiative?
