When the round, melodious sound of Philippe Aerts’ double bass meets the light, emotional voice of Raphaëlle Brochet, the result is a duo of remarkable musical complicity. Their first album is a blend of jazz, bepop and Indian music.
In June 2015, the singer, dancer and ethno-musicologist Raphaëlle Brochet met bassist Philippe Aerts. They conncected immediately at a musical level and so created a double bass-vocal duo. In turn soloist and accompanist, Raphaëlle Brochet and Philippe Aerts blur the outlines of the standard repertoire of their instruments to create a distinctive soundscape fed by their respective experiences.
This first album is a cocktail of Carnatic music (traditional music from Southern India), Bulgarian folk songs and hints of Bebop, Jazz and Arabic styles. The duo passes from one genre to the other with surprising ease, creating stories through this world of sounds. Raphaëlle Brochet vocals Philippe Aerts double bass
A journey through a world of colours, traditions, rhythms and, of course, jazz and improvisation.
