During the summer, Musea Brugge organises six concerts in Salon Arents. A series of intimate performances with young, Belgian talent in a unique setting. Uma Chine will kick off the event on Saturday 2 July.
The Gent-based trio Uma Chine combines roots and electronica, the human (hUman) and the maChine. A young, headstrong band that simply enjoys playing. Front woman Nele De Gussem (Maya's Moving Castle, Future Old People Are Wizards, Inwolves) took a couple of excellent musicians from the Ghent pop and jazz scene under her wing and fused everyone's talent in Uma Chine into a strong amalgam of sixties psychedelia and contemporary synthpop (Indiestyle).
Salon Arents is inspired by the historical salon of the 17th century where writers, philosophers and visual artists came together to discuss but also to listen to music. We build on this tradition, in a present-day setting.
With Salon Arents, we try to break through the museum's traditional set-up and to install an alternative programme. This also means offering a platform to contemporary artists and musicians. The Salon Sessions are free of charge. No need to book in advance, just walk in and enjoy the concerts.
