Les artistes de Wallonie
et de Bruxelles

Annabel Lee
Annabel Lee

Joyfully messy and naive, Brussels band Annabel Lee has, since its debut in January 2017, perfected its formula while writing its first album “Let The Kid Go”, released in March 2020. The 90’s spirit is always part of the recipe, but it’s mostly the effective writing and the strong personality that emerges from their songs that are praised by critics. In June 2021, the group represented Belgium at the Printemps de Bourges Festival in France. They’re back in September 2021 with an extended edition of their album containing unreleased tracks and acoustic versions. 

Rrita Jashari
Rrita Jashari

Rrita Jashari (1989) was born in Prishtina, Kosovo and moved to Belgium at age 3. She’s always been a music-passionate-person and has been being involved in musical projects and collecting vinyl for years now. 

She’s one of the founders of the Brussels based 54KOLAKTIV and 54 Sound, a Jamaican style handcrafted soundsystem. Since a year, she’s also programmer at VK Concerts in Molenbeek and a resident DJ at Kiosk Radio. 

  • belgian modern jazz

ECHT! is a band from Brussels.

Inspired by the concepts that you can find in electronic music and effects of musical production, they steal those languages and apply them to their music.

With their totally home-made sound they play their set like a DJ.

Avalanche Kaito
  • griot
  • Punk

Kaito Winse, a young griot from Burkina Faso based in Brussels teams up with two musicians from the European underground scene. This avalanche of pure data with post punk attitude mingled with ancestral roots could be called « Griot Punk Noise ».

David Numwami
David Numwami

If you're attuned to the ins and outs of the French pop scene then Brussell-based solo artist David Numwami might be someone you've come across. The musician is ill-afraid to be extravagant and decorative, with complex layers seemingly infinite and dream-like. Numwami is a connoisseur of tone and melody; evoking so much feeling through his fingertips.


Tukan blends jazz and post rock music to take you into an organic and computerless electronic journey.. Bruxelles. 14 Followers. Stream Tracks and Playlists from TUKAN on your desktop or mobile device.

  • nintendocore
  • belgian hip hop
  • vlaamse rap

Belgian hip hop artist and producer from Brussels. Member of Le 77. 

Laryssa Kim
Laryssa Kim

Laryssa Kim uses in her performances live electronics and vocals loops to create hypnotic, surrealistic and oneiric soundscapes.

Reinel Bakole
Reinel Bakole

Instinctive and avant-garde, Reinel Bakole is a multidisciplinary artist whose free spirit leaves no one indifferent.


Born in 1994 in Lusaka, Zambia, from parents of Angolan and Zambian descent, M I M I (aka Maria Green) is a Brussels-based artist & DJ. Living in Belgium since 1998, she explores her Afro-European cultural heritage through different media. She doesn’t stick to any precise musical style, but explores and combines continuously instead. She’s been active in the music scene with DJ collective Lait de Coco and as DJ for Martha Da’ro, as well as once a month on The Word Radio. Searching for inspiration in forward thinking movements while exploring her roots, she approaches arts and music with her own Afro-futuristic vision. Cosmic electronic sounds, bewitching rhythms, percussions, all that blended with the hottest tracks of today.

Alek et Les Japonaises

It’s common to blast dancefloors into oblivion within the rigid confines of the four-to-the-floor, but Belgium-born DJ Cabasa approaches club music almost like solving a Rubik’s cube. 

Discount his music as cerebral at your own peril, however: his tribalistic productions prompt as much impulsive movement as anything, making heads spin in search of where the floor begins and the ceiling ends.

When Cabasa runs the show, you could probably discover the fourth dimension by accident.
