An amazing Celtic Folk Group is playing for you in Brussels on the 25th of November in an exquisite cosy jazz club. What better way than to celebrate the start of the winter season than to get mesmerised by Celtic music. Bothan especially plays for the benefit of Children are the Future, so the proceeds go to children in need of help in India and Cambodia.

Bothán are a Brussels based folk group comprising Elise Docherty (vocals), Jane McBride (vocals), Andy Upton (guitar), and Alex Smith (everything else). Over the last few years they’ve been building up a reputation for themselves as one of the best folk groups in town. Their music is based on the wonderfully complementary voices of Elise and Jane, with instumental backing from Alex and Andy and their repertoire includes songs for all tastes: traditional favourites, new and innovative arrangements of old ballads, as well as a number of original compositions.

Saturday April 29: Concert BUGARI EXPRESS Charity Concert

Saturday April 29: Concert BUGARI EXPRESS Charity Concert

This year once again on Saturday evening on April 29th at Sazz n’ Jazz we have a great concert for you that will make you want to sing and dance. Let’s celebrate Spring time with music from all around the world and contribute to the improvement of lives of children and families in Cambodia and India!

BEGet on the “Bugari Express” and let yourself be taken on a wonderful musical trip across the world, from the Balkans to Argentina. During the event you will also have the opportunity to enjoy a presentation of  beautiful pictures from the last trip of CAF volunteers to India and Cambodia (and maybe you want to join us on the next trip?!).

About Bugari Express: The accordionist Stijn Verhofstadt brought together an eclectic group of musicians who are all passionate about Klezmer and Eastern European musics. With the arrival of the singer Chantal Alvares, the group did not only gain a fantastic voice, but also enriched its repertoire with tango and fado due to Chantal’s Portuguese and Argentinean origins.

The band members are: Jef (double bass), Kathleen (violin), Djama (percussion) Chantal (voice), Stijn (accordeon), Philippe (clarinet) and Stanislas (guitar). They will take us on a musical journey through time and space with Gypsy and Balkan music, tango or their own versions of classic hits by bands such as  Vaya Con Dios.

University of Applied Sciences Utrecht (nl) collaborates with CAF on social media project

CAF visited the University of Applied Sciences in Utrecht (HU) today to meet with 3rd and 4th year students to envisage possibilities for a collaboration on social media activities.

Under the guidance of a very enthusiastic Professor Ari Purnama, who invited us to the University, we were able to have an interesting dialogue with the students about how we could further improve CAF’s outreach to online audiences ‘European wide’.

We hope that our visit is the beginning of a great and inspirational dialogue with the students at the HU and are looking much forward working with them.
