Black Flower (BE)

Combine the urge of creating with Nathan's conscious and subconscious and a new group with a new repertoire comes into existence. Welcome into the soul of these five people.

Nathan Daems, multi-instrumentalist (who started playing the violin when he was only two years old) started this band in 2012. With drummer Simon Segers he played already in his own Nathan Daems Quintet (worldjazz) with whom he played several major gigs in Belgium (even on the Gent Jazz Festival in 2011, just before the legendary master himself Sonny Rollins!) and recorded an album on Belgium biggest jazz Label W.E.R.F.

With bass player Filip Vandebril he (Nathan) worked together in Antwerp Gipsy Ska Orkestra (Balkan fusion). They toured around the world and collaborated with people like Marko Markovic, Kocani Orkestar,... They were asked by Peter Gabriel to perform before him on a memorial day in Oswiecim (Auschwitz, Poland)… Filip is a master of earthquake invoking & soul filling bass sounds.

Cornet player Jon Birdsong (Texas born & Belgian based) toured in the past with Beck, Calexico, Think of One and countless other projects. Jon came to blow peoples minds in his own mental way that fitted perfectly in this newborn Nathiopian tradition. Together with Nathan he howls to the moon, makes his bird calls and shoots his sound waves directly up and down your spine.

Then keyboard player Wouter Haest is one of Belgium's most talented pianists. As a multi-instrumentalist he worked with Voodoo Boogie, Los Callejeros and many more…
