The Belgian group Belcirque weaves together vocal harmonies, horns, guitars, bass and percussion into one magic whole. Belcirque’s music is a fine blend of voices singing in different languages. The 3 albums ‘Boîte de Carton' (2014), 'The Tallest Man' (2018) and the most recent 'La Grande Fête' (2021) are decorated with stories in English, French and Spanish.
Belcirque's songs, filled with wonderment and colour, invite you into their own universe, far away from the day-to-day hustle and bustle. You can hear influences of swing, folk & pop music. Sometimes it even feels like you are pulled back in time, though each song first and foremost sounds like... Belcirque.
Since 2013 this 7-piece band turned many venues upside down; music halls, street theatre, festivals big and small, ... Belcirque can be spotted in Europe, the UK, and even in South Korea.
