Rudy Trouvé has a new exhibition coming up at CC Muze in Heusden-Zolder. From the 28th of August until the 25th of September this cultural centre will present some of his most recent work – a collection of drawings, collages and paintings.
Tomorrow (August 13th), he will share the stage with Mauro Pawlowski, Jean-Yves Evrard, Roman Hiele and Eric Thielemans at the Jazz Middelheim festival. Under the moniker The Mechanics are Dancing in your Head this all-star formation will reinterpret some of the music of Ornette Coleman. Not to be missed!
Here’s the most recent episode of the Kralenspel radio show for your listening pleasure:
Britain-based Belgian music label Jezus Factory has been going for ten brave years now. To celebrate this birthday, they have recently released “God Owes Us A Hot Tub” (get it?), a compilation cd featuring lots of Heaven Hotel (and related) acts, including (among many others) Rudy Trouvé and Craig Ward.
Digital copies are sold here for a mere 50p. Physical copies are even cheaper – you get them for free with any purchase through the Jezus Factory webshop.
Here’s the latest episode of Het Kralenspel featuring Elko Blijweert and Jeroen Stevens:
Coming up are two (2!) rare solo appearances by Elko Blijweert, both in Antwerp. Rudy Trouvé proves to be even more prolific as a solo artist these days by announcing no less than four (4!) gigs in the same city.
In the meantime Elko is still performing live with renowned dance troupe Ultima Vez alongside Mauro Pawlowski, Jeroen Stevens and Tutu Pouane. Check out one (or more) of their rare Belgian performances at Vooruit in Gent, where the “Speak Low” spectacle can be admired for three nights in a row starting today.
