This year we DON'T participate in 'De Warmste Week' ( yearly solidarity action in Belgium)!

No, it's not possible.

Because the nonprofit NE(S)T, the organisation Choux de Bruxelles - artist collective want to support, only started in September and is therefore can not participate in 'De Warmste Week'. To be eligible you have to present your annual financial statements.

That's why we organise our own Warmest Month!
From November 15 'till December 21 we sell the Ik en den Theo / Moi et le Théo albums at the reduced price of €10. The €5 profit per album sold will go to NE(S)T.

To support them, buy the albums through our online shop (physical) or via Bandcamp (physical and/or digital).

NE(S)T arises from journalist Saskia Van Nieuwenhove's activities. For several years we have been following her efforts in the domain of youthcare. Every now and then we transfered a small amount on her personal bank account, sometimes we engaged our network to help solve the crises occuring in the lives of the young people that crossed Saskia's path.

In all those years we never doubted for a single second if the money got into the right hands. It was clear that this situation wasn't sustainable in the long run. Therefor we are very happy that Saskia's friends, together with experts in human trafficing founded the nonprofit NE(S)T.

NE(S)T's main focus is the shelter and guidance of minors and adults that became victims of human trafficking (teenagerpimps) in Saskia's home (with approval of the juvenile judge).
They also try to communicate towards the policy makers and share their experiences in the hopes that the system will become better adjusted to these issues.

NE(S)T also engages other specialised organisations, such as Childfocus and Payoke.

Apart from volunteers to support their activities, day/night shelter and practical and administrative guidance they mostly need funds to pay for the shelter of these young people.

With a party band such as this, there’s clearly a lot more going on in Brussels than EU legislation and the Brexit negotiations.

Imagine us jumping up and down for joy with the first UK review of Europeana by Simon Broughton in the London Evening Standard ‼️
4 stars for Europeana in the albums of the week!

A rousing live band!

Jaune Toujours' Europeana was mentioned alongside Gaye Su Akyol, Vaudou Game and Oi Va Voi in The Guardian by Robin Denselow!

" From Belgium, there’s a welcome return from Jaune Toujours with their good-time blend of ska, punk, Balkan styles and brassy jazz. The upbeat songs on Europeana (their answer to Americana) include the stomping Funky Brussels and Save Le Monde. They are a rousing live band..."

Jaune Toujours zette de centrale inkomhal aan de bar op stelten. In een heuse disco opstelling konden de kinderen alles goed bekijken. En wie zich niet kon inhouden mocht gewoon zelf meeblazen op één van de vele extra instrumenten. Piet Maris & co kregen de bende gemakkelijk aan de “swich swich” en de polonaise.

Jaune Toujours beleefde een schitterende tijd op de Big Bang Festivals in Gent, Antwerpen en Brussel!

Het Nieuwsblad was er bij en schreef een mooi sfeerverslag. Lees het hier.

Laatste kans om het zelf te ervaren op 24 en 25 november in Lille (Frankrijk).

Bekijk zeker ook eens de foto's en video's gemaakt door de aanwezige fans.

Muzikaal is het album vooral ‘stomend’ te noemen. Ska is vaak aanwezig, maar ook jazz, afro en nog zoveel andere genres.

Een zeer fijne review van het nieuwe Jaune Toujours album EUROPEANA door Folkroddels.be!
