Playing tracks by
Dez Mona and Echo Beatty.
Icarus Live Session #20: Dez Mona. Dez Mona starts as a duo between double bass player Nicolas Rombouts and vocalist Gregory Frateur. They find themselves in their mutual roots of jazz, drama, experimental and spirituals.
They choose a path of intense playing and create a strong live-reputation in the Belgian underground. Acclaimed by critics and fans, Dez Mona records its first album "Pursued Sinners" in a church.
In the following years they released 'MOMENTS OF DEJECTION OR DESPONDENCY' & 'HILFE KOMMT'. In 2011 they made 'Sàga', a highly acclaimed song cycle/opera with baroque instruments, a 'Gesamtkunstwerk' with artists from other disciplines. In 2012 they release their youngest album, A Gentleman's Agreement, where they sound poppier than ever-without loosing their own identity.
In this session they were joined by Roel Van Camp on accordeon.
