La Nouvelle Harmonie Bruxelloise d'Accordeons - Band of accordions

The
Harmonie d'Accordéons de Bruxelles was founded in 1912. Ninety years later, in 2002, Piet Maris, his pupils and a few others created a new band of accordions.

After a few final rehearsals, they played in full force (with 33 participants at that moment) for the first time on the occasion of the
Zinneke Parade, in Brussels.

After that you might have spotted them at the
Dimanche sans Voitures (September 2002), the Street Sharing Party (September 2002), the Festival Happening in Hasselt (June 2003) or the street party Volders en fête in Saint-Gilles (mai 2003 & 2004).
Part of the Nouvelle Harmonie Bruxelloise d'Accordéons played on the recording of Più Lontano on the album Barricade by Jaune Toujours. As a result of that, they were invited to play with Jaune Toujours at some of their concerts: at the Halles de Schaerbeek in Brussels, at the Airbag Festival in Bruges, at the Opening Week of the new KVS in Brussels, and with the live recordings of the live recordings of Jaune Toujours at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels.

The Nouvelle Harmonie Bruxelloise d'Accordéons not only does festivals in Belgium, but also plays abroad, like in
Bollèene in France (July 2006), on tour for the festival Accordeonslag in the Netherlands (March 2007), at the children music festival Happy Day in the Lille Opera House (June 2008) and at the accorion festival Printemps des Bretelles in Illkrich (Strassbourg, march 2009).

On the program: typical accordion repertoire, thoroughly revisited with a pretty dynamic touch – tango, waltzes, bourrées, Balkan stuff, ska and more…
