Facebook event Share Tweet

Founded in 2008, by Manchester-based trumpeter, composer and producer Matthew Halsall, Gondwana Records, turned 10 last year. Originally founded to shine a light on the Manchester scene, Gondwana Records is one of the UKs most influential jazz (and beyond) record labels, launching GoGo Penguin on the world and now home to an international roster featuring artists from as far afield as Los Angeles and Melbourne, Australia.

Following sold out shows in London Roundhouse, Manchester Yes and Tokyo Unit Gondwana Records is super excited to present Gondwana 10 Brussels at one of our favourite venues, the amazing AB (Ancienne Belgique) in Brussels.

In the main hall, local heroes STUFF. (who are released internationally by NEWS/Gondwana) headline, alongside performances from wide-screen minimalists Portico Quartet, sublime spiritual jazz from Matthew Halsall & The Gondwana Orchestra and a debut for former Cinematic Orchestra bassist Phil France, performing his own subtle, ever evolving -compositions.

Meanwhile in the club you can check out, powerful electro-soul outfit Noya Rao from Leeds and Gondwana’s latest signings, Polish piano sensation Hania Rani performing compositions inspired by Icelandic landscapes and the Polish Bieszczady mountains and Sunda Arc whose unique hybrid of electronic and acoustic instruments will get you dancing.

This event is co-hosted by Flagey.

Hania, you are amazing and made me cry! So beautiful! Thank you!!
Voor dit festival uit Amsterdam gekomen, speciaal voor Portico Quartet, een waanzinnige muzikale trip!! En daarna kennis gemaakt met Stuff, wat een geweldig energiek optreden vol passie!! Genoten!!
Super soirée et découvertes. Quelques images sur écran(s) auraient été chouettes, coté AB Club, car le son c'est bien, et l'image peut être appréciable. Au passage, félicitation à la régie lumière dans le main Hall. See you next time, for sure

Gezellige avond. Eten in AB resto was, zoals steeds weer super! MAAR STUFF, mij god, wat zijn die mannen buitenaards goed!!! Ze overtroffen zichzelf gisterenavond. Wat een samenspel, wat een klankorgie. Alleen maar lovende woorden. Love them ❤️
Très chouette soirée à l’AB! Prestation de Matthew Halsall + Gondwana Orchestra tout en nuances et subtilité. Les six musiciens nous ont régalés de chorus bien habités. (Dommage qu’ils ne nous aient pas été présentés, mention spéciale pour la harpiste!) Ils sont parvenus à créer une ambiance qui nous ramenait aux plus douces et spirituelles pages de John et Alice Coltrane. Portico, dans des sonorités plus électro, a mis le feu. Le light-show était vraiment excellent. Le son aussi, quoiqu’un peu trop fort à mon avis pour ce genre de musique. Encore bravo! :-)
Voor deze avond vanuit Amsterdam naar Brussel gekomen. Waanzinnige avond gehad. Top muzikanten die top muziek speelden. Volgens mij ging het dak eraf! Geweldig poppodium die jazz muziek brengt waar je je vingers bij af likt. Leuk jong publiek die van goede muziek houd. In Amsterdam zie je dit helaas niet! Matthew H +... had van mij langer mogen spelen. Maar ja, je kan niet alles hebben
Topavond! Volle flex aan het dansen en springen op Jazz op het randje. Na BRDCST en KNTXT weer wat grenzen open gebroken.
