YHI @Théâtre Marni

River Jazz Night

Stéphane Galland - drums / Adriaan Van De Velde - keys

In the past, Stéphane Galland worked with big names like Ibrahim Maalouf, Zap Mama and Ozark Henry, and he also made it his business of working with the best musicians from different cultures – from India across the Balkans to Africa. But the drummer is without a doubt most famous as a founding member of Aka Moon, one of the most talked-about jazz bands in Belgian music history. Galland is celebrating his fiftieth birthday this year, but his sound is still ageless. Over the years he has developed his own unique rhythmic approach by connecting the different musical traditions in which he has worked.

The Antwerp-based keyboard player Adriaan Van de Velde is one of Belgium’s best kept secrets of the electronic music scene. And yes, he has the taste – nobody is perfect – for the keytar. His own project “Pomrad” was once called the love child of Hudson Mohawke and Herbie Hancock. With Adriaan, Stéphane Galland found the perfect match and daredevil to start his new adventure YHI: a boundless, funny, creative, avant-gardish, groovy, virtuous, colorful and very musical universe in which electronica is the medium to find new perspectives on his Carte Blanche. YHI, the goddess of light and creation, The Aboriginal Goddess of Light.
