New release: Kris Defoort Diving Poet Society

One year after their successful creation tour through Slovenia, Hungary, Germany & Belgium, Kris Defoort and his ‘Diving Poet Society’ come out with the self-titled album Kris Defoort Diving Poet Society (WERF Records). They’re excited to present this gem to you in four Belgian cities:

02.11 Jazz Station, Brussels
03.11 deSingel, Antwerp
04.11 Handelsbeurs, Ghent
05.11 Vrijstaat O. (KAAP), Ostend

For this album and its Belgian release, Hungarian singer Veronika Harcsa and French saxophone player Guillaume Orti join the Kris Defoort Trio (Nicolas Thys, Lander Gyselinck & Kris himself) to put several magnificent poems by poet Peter Verhelst (Bruges) into music. Balancing between improvisation, composition and instant orchestration, they search for that one magical moment. Or in the words of Kris: “five musical poets communicating the joy of diving into an ocean full of infinite colours, words & sounds.”
