MikMâäk is anything but your average bigband: 16 top musicians with astonishing personalities, a repertoire composed by different band members and a savoury mix of sheet music and improvisations. The artistic coordination lies in the hands of Laurent Blondiau and Fabian Fiorini. After their debut album MikMâäk, the band will release a new live album in 2019.
Ever since the creation of the project in 2014, MikMâäk has performed at the most renowned jazz festivals in Belgium: the Brussels Jazz Festival, Jazz Middelheim, Gaume Jazz and Mithra Jazz in Liège. The group has also been resident band at Recyclart and Théâtre Marni.
Their sound, energy & podium presence is simply fascinating. Organised chaos is altered with sharp individual interventions that flow organically into liberating compositions… with Mâäk’s typically disarming touch of humour!
