Event Details

How Town is a Belgian/Latvian ensemble led by composer/bassist Lennart Heyndels. They combine contemporary popular music with improvisation and influences from experimental music. Point of departure is ‘the voice’ and all its different possibilities. How Town came into existence in 2012 when Lennart wrote a suite based on the poem Anyone lived in a pretty how town by E.E. Cummings. In the meantime the group has released two albums and was awarded the Young Music prize at the Theater Aan Zee festival in Oostende (BE). Their goal is to bring accessible music without relinquishing complexity. How Town operates ‘outside of the box’, giving their music the self-invented name contemporary multi-style post-pop music.

Take two jazz trained instrumentalists and let them pretend they were rock and roll singers/songwriter. Old Men In Khaki is a teenager-friendly post-jazz/improv duo from Amsterdam, in a high-energy unplugged setting.
