Didier Laloy diatonic accordion
Kathy Adam cello
A striking combination of cello and accordion, the duo Belem draws on folk, tango and classical traditions to take chamber music in fresh directions.
Belem is a meeting of the unexpected: a striking combination of placid cello and rhythmic, edgy accordion which captures a new sound and spirit for the 21st century whilst respecting its folk, tango and classical roots. The result is both reflective and edgy, sensuous and strongly rhythmic, melancholic and fast-paced, spontaneous and considered. The duo’s charismatic physical presence, combined with its unique musical style, draws its audience in and takes them on a magical, musical journey.
