Hommage à Brel in Kampala, Uganda (Concert du 28 novembre 2017)
Filip, surrounded by his band, delivered a tribute that will keep tongues in Kampala wagging for a long time to come. We all know that Filip Jordens tribute aims to reincarnate or 'restore' the legendary Belgian chansonnier Brel, bring him back to life for us all to enjoy one more time, and he truly didn't disappoint. From the resonance and nuances of his voice to his body gestures, one truly begins to appreciate how he literally puts his body and soul into his performance. A much deserved standing ovation at the end was the least Filip deserved for raising the roof off a packed ballroom.
All we can say again is, thank you Filip and your crew for delivering a truly memorable performance for us in Kampala! And with a special thanks also to our main sponsor for the concert Brussels Airlines and for the entire team of the Embassy for making this concert possible, in particular Sam Vanuytsel for coming up with this brilliant idea and the contacts, and Elke, Lobke and Ruthie for helping to make it come true!
