By MR DIAGONAL & THE BLACK LIGHT ORCHESTRA
The musical group the "Black Light Orchestra" is an inspired marriage between 2 unusual traditions: British music-hall and Belgian surrealism. Founded in 2005, based in Brussels and composed of 5 musicians, the BLO's music is intriguing and droll, where musical rigor is placed firmly at the service of the absurd.
The Scottish singer-pianist-composer Daniel Barbenel, whose songs and compositions are influenced equally by music-hall, english pop and classical music, is accompanied by 4 musicians: saxophones, flutes, keyboard, drums and vibraphone. An assortment of unusual objects completes the musical landscape; percussion, toys and analogue electronics all contribute to the unexpected and joyful atmosphere of their concerts.
These Belgian performers are certainly everything you need to celebrate life: funny, sentimental, loud, delicate, original, heartbreaking and overall: strange!
