A HEARTBEAT SPINOFF

Spilar is a new band inspired by their shared passion for songs rooted in their home area. Songs that were discovered and collected, revived and reinterpreted in Flanders, the north region of Belgium. Short-chain-music in a way. Formed around the voices of siblings Eva and Maarten Decombel (MANdolinMAN) and sustained by the strings and keyboards of Ward Dhoore (Trio Dhoore) and Jeroen Geerinck (Snaarmaarwaar). They are completed by drummer Louis Favre who paints the warm pastel colours on their musical palette.

With Stormweere, their debut album, the band sculpts a highly personal universe - a vibrant confrontation of pearls from centuries-old manuscripts, contemporary and self-written songs. There’s room for classics like 'Roosendaa'l and 'Myn Herte' but also for Willem Vermandere’s polder blues and the Antwerp fado of Wannes Van de Velde and a pitch black version of Jacques Brel’s 'Pourquoi les hommes s’ennuient'.
