Belgium is a cultural crossroads where Flemish Dutch-speaking and Walloon French-speaking inhabitants mix with German minorities and immigrant communities from Republic of the Congo and other distant countries. It’s a multi lingual country that always has an attraction on foreigners. And Brussels is where the European Parliament resides.

This has it’s effect on the popular music made in Belgium. Threads from gypsyfolk, French chanson, German schlager and Dutch kleinkunst all weaved into one. Do not mistake however that in this melting pot the Belgians lost their identity. Usually being proud, witty and stubborn in one they love to experiment. This results in sometimes highly original although not always accessible music.
