Belgium

Belgian chromatic accordion virtuoso Tuur Florizoone took classical piano classes and studied jazz piano and composition at the conservatory. He gained some of his practical experience in Brazil (i.e. at the workshops of master percussionist Nana Vasconcelos), and by accompanying circus, dance and theatre shows.

Florizoone has collaborated with heavyweights from the worlds of jazz (Philip Catherine, Garrett List), pop music (Stijn Meuris, Thé Lau), classical music (Claron McFadden, the Brussels Philharmonic, Metropol Orkest) and the folk and world music scene (Luka Bloom, Carlos Nunes). As an improviser, he’s at his best in open situations with a lot of freedom and interaction, like in the group Tricycle, the collective trio Massot/Florizoone/Horbaczewski,
and in a duo with diatonic accordionist Didier Laloy.

Tuur Florizoone is also active and recognized internationally as an award-winning soundtrack composer, demonstrating his mastery of mood and atmosphere creation, in such films as “Les Amours des Moules” and “Aanrijding in Moscou”.

Florizoone has funded his own music label ‘Aventura Musica’ on which he released 9 albums of his musical bands and soundtracks.

Album Melodías del Instante - Constanza Guzmán - GAM Music

New Release! – Melodías del Instante

Chilean world music vocalist Constanza Guzmán’s warm and charismatic voice will give you goosebumps... She navigates from the low to the high notes with a disconcerting ease and naturalness.
In her new album "Melodías del Instante", she presents her own compositions, arranged by the virtuoso accordionist Tuur Florizoone, they are joined by Victor da Costa and Stephan Pougin to form an interactive quartet.
One is immersed in a universe where Constanza translates her artistic quest as a woman songwriter, and her militant attachment to "beauty" with themes that are dear to her such as nature, exile, the invisible, and love.
