For artists, public and Sound in Motion a Summer Bummer mini session at Citadelic is heaven-sent.

The selfless Citadelic team clears the stage for this Summer Bummer mini session during the afternoon session between 11.00 and 15.00 on Friday August 21st.

If Covid-19 doesn’t put a stop to it the successful meeting between Ken Vandermark’s Marker and Belgian players Farida Amadou (el. bass), Hanne De Backer (baritone sax), Audrey Lauro (alto sax) and Stan Maris (accordion) will be continued in November 2020. In the mean time these four driven Belgian musicians will play for the first time live on stage as a quartet at this Summer Bummer mini session at Citadelic.
Amadou, Maris, De Backer and Lauro are regular guests at the Oorstof concert series and at previous Summer Bummer Festivals. Amadou shared the stage with Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, Steve Noble, Peter Brötzmann, Rodrigo Amado and Tom Malmendier; De Backer toured with Agnes Hvizdalek, Raphael Malfliet and Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø as g a b b r o and collaborated with Paal Nilssen-Love, Angel Bat Dawid, Signe Emmeluth and The Ex; Lauro made her mark on stage with musicians like Mette Rasmussen, Anna Högberg, Pak Yan Lau, Christine Abdelnour, Yuko Oshima, Ada Rave, Adam Cadell and Jasper Stadhouders; Maris was one of the revelations of the Summer Bummer festival in 2018 and stood out at the Visitations event in 2019.
Violin player Ananta Roosens steps out of her comfort zone and starts with a clean slate in her solo project ceci n’est pas un violon. With her violin and voice augmented with common household objects she embarks on a surprising musical journey into the unknown. She distances herself from the all too familiar world of classical and world music and dives into a sounding adventure in search for musical freedom.
Roosens studied classic and tango violin at the music conservatory of Rotterdam. During her studies she founded La Sieste du Dromadaire, a band somewhere between tango, classical music and jazz. After her studies she was drawn more and more to jazz and improvised music while teaching herself to play the trumpet.
Ann Eysermans’ and Frans Van Isacker’s planned visit to the three day Visitations event and the Summer Bummer Festival with Nicolas Chkifi and Ananta Roosens vanished into thin air due to the cancellations because of the Covid-19 virus. Now Eysermans and Van Isacker will finally hit the stage, and will do so under the name of DUO .

A small history – of collecting unbound sounds and harmonies – repeats itself over and again, each time in a different way and disparate. Heraclitus said: “Opposites unite, out of divergences the most beautiful harmonies emerge, everything emanates out of duality.” (Fragment B8) Something like that.
