Black Flower (BE)
With a hybrid jazz based on African grooves, Ethio-oriental melodies and psychedelic dub this Belgian five-piece creates an atmosphere where ancient and modern sounds fuse into a powerful, hypnotic and groovy sensation.
Receiving critical acclaim for their third album ‘Future Flora’ (2019), the Belgian quintet will release their fourth album entitled ‘Magma’ on 21st January 2022 via Sdban Ultra.
Piloted by saxophonist/flutist/composer Nathan Daems (Ragini Trio, Dijf Sanders, Echoes of Zoo), the input of notorious musicians, drummer Simon Segers (MDC III, De Beren Gieren, Stadt), cornet player Jon Birdsong (dEUS, Beck, Calexico), keyboardist Karel Ceulenaere (John Ghost) and bassist Filip Vandebril (Lady Linn, The Valerie Solanas) leads to the specific universe that only Black Flower is able to create.
Black Flower have received radio support from BBC Radio 6 (Gilles Peterson), BBC Radio 3 (Late Junction) and Worldwide FM.
“Black Flower eke out an unfathomable groove that says everything about their riveting playfulness and throttling sense of adventure.” MOJO (****)
