The concert consists of a selection of Jacques Brel’s thoughtful and theatrical songs, translated into Finnish. The songs include all aspects of life - love, death, and social perceptions. Even gloomy subjects are dealt with in the manner of Brel.
The assembly conductor, Jukka Nurmela, wants to bring the concert atmosphere close to the intimate and obscure gigs of Brel’s early career. In addition to Joni Kuokkanen, the line-up includes Nurmela on double bass, Henri Haakana on accordion and glockenspiel, and Kaisa Ristiluoma playing piano.
The Everyone Believes in Love concerts are on March 6th, 13th and 27th at 7 pm at the Savottakahvila Café.
