Deux Accords Diront doesn’t want to be restricted to a single genre. All the better, because the end result is enthralling: surprising, spontaneous and free. Apart from the purely musical aspect, the two musicians represent an authentic and fun spectacle. With humour, also aimed at themselves, they share their passions with their audiences. They love it and know how to convey this.

Fapy Lafertin Quintet & Tim Kliphuis.
In the 70’s of the twentieth century, Gypsy jazz was revived. This was mainly the case for the works by the Waso Quartet of Koen de Cauter and Fapy Lafertin. The music of Django Reinhardt, the most important European jazz musician from the first half of the last century, is given a new lease on life. Fapy Lafertin has added a new dimension to Gypsy Jazz: adding drums, cornet and reed instruments to the guitars and bass.
