Biggest Melanie fans so far: Gilles Peterson, Eels and Philip Selway (Radiohead)

AB is

proud to present THE NEW WAVE OF BELGIAN JAZZ!: a fantastic five-dayer to conclude the successful JAZZ 100 series. We focus on the latest generation of musicians from The Contemporary National Jazz Scene, for whom jazz is more of a mentality than a genre.

‘Het lijkt haast of Nina Simone uit de doden is opgestaan.’
(De Morgen)

Melanie De Biasio instantly nestled herself into the category ‘best the jazz world has to offer worldwide’ with her album ‘No Deal’ (from ’13 already). And we weren’t alone: BBC guru Gilles Peterson became a fan but Eels did too, promptly takin Melanie along on tour and even devoting their very first remix to her. Meanwhile, everyone is anxiously awaiting the successor, even though ‘Blackened Cities’ unexpectedly appeared last year: a raw image of her beloved hometown Charleroi that lasts no less than 24 minutes. The song, that is. Melanie simply followed her musical gut-feeling and we love to treasure someone like that.

Her brand new album ‘Lilies’ will be released right after the summer. Melanie: ‘After my experiences with ‘No Deal’ and ‘Blackened Cities', I could have gone to a big studio, made a big production – but I wanted none of that. I wanted to go back to the seed of creativity, the simplest materials. I was in this room where there was no light, no night or day at all, no heat. Very uncomfortable. But I felt free. For me, ‘Lilies’ has a darkness, but it’s also luminous.’
