Last weekend, VoiXlà performed a nice series of concerts. The excellent singers and musicians were invited to La Chapelle de Verre (Ronquières), Théatre de la Vie and Cellule 133a (Brussels). The audience was instantly captured by the onomatopoeia, the sounds and melodies of this original ensemble, directed by Olivier Thomas.
VoiXlà is preparing for the recordings of a demo in the SAE studio (institute of sound engineers) in Ixelles. They will record 3 songs that will make you want to dive into a smooth and unique universe of rhythm and melody. Soon available!
Tomassenko is the project of Olivier Thomas, in which he gatheres different musicians from professional and non professional environments around a unique repertoire. Thomas was a resident for the last 4 years in Theatre de La Balsamine, and he will celebrate the end of this period with 5 concerts. You can already book the 5th and 11th of February in your agenda, because Zappa – Bigband of children – and VoiXlà – new vocal project of MET-X- will then be performing together with the musicians of Tomassenko! You really don’t want to miss this… Info & Tickets: www.balsamine.be
