Hanne De Backer has had much success in the Belgian improv-scene over recent years. She took her first creative steps as a theatre maker at KVS, later focusing more on her sax and music. Aside from her band g a b b r o, she is also a part of Mudskipper and Condor Gruppe, and she regularly plays with other improv artists like The Ex, Paal Nilssen-Love and Ken Vandermark.
