Griff Trio - Yoraré (Belgium 2014) @320


The album YORARE by Griff Trio is the result of 10 years of playing together, meeting people all over the world and hours of questioning themselves about their artistic identity. Until this album, their music was a lucky melting pot of different tunes from different parts of Europe. The more exotic, the better!
But slowly, the idea to work with their own traditional music, the underrated Belgian folk music, started to grow.
Putting their nose into dusty Walloon manuscripts, old Flemish songbooks or listening to rattling field recordings was like reading grandparent's personal diaries. Simple people's stories, anecdotes of yesteryears, humble melodies of street dances…
They could have played those melodies in their most rough form, like a bunch of photocopies, but they preferred to confront them to their imagination and artistic desires...
So no nostalgia in this record, but the breath of 21st century troubadours.
