Boggamasta

19/11/2017 - 19/11/2017

BOGGAMASTA is the latest project of the 15 piece band Flat Earth Society (FES), founded in 1998 by composer, producer and clarinettist Peter Vermeersch. DAVID BOVÉE was the fi rst FES guitarist from 1999 till 2003. After four years he left the band to develop his own project ‘Think of One’ (BBC Radio 3 World Music Award in 2004 and 2007), working with either throat singers from Greenland, Gnawa musicians from Morocco or Brazilian virtuosos, each project resulted in an exciting melting pot of music. Meanwhile, David lives and works in São Paulo (Brazil) and knows the Maracutu, Frevo, Ciranda and Coco music through and through. A fruitful collaboration between both bandleaders for the ‘Theater aan Zee Festival’ in Ostend (B) in 2013 (an ad hoc orchestra with four Gambian musicians), triggered them to think about a new project. For BOGGAMASTA, Vermeersch and Bovée wrote an exuberant repertoire; direct, energetic, frenzied, feverish, delirious and groovy, with lots of electro! BOGGAMASTA is: David Bovée (guitar & vocals), Benjamin Boutreur (alto sax), Peter Delannoye (trombone), Berlinde Deman (tuba), Bart Maris (trumpet), Michel Mast (tenor sax), Thomas Mayade (trumpet), Marc Meeuwissen (trombone), Kristof Roseeuw (double bass & violin), Amel Serra Garcia (percussion), Peter Vandenberghe (keyboards & laptop), Bruno Vansina (bariton sax & flute), Teun Verbruggen (drums & percussion), Peter Vermeersch (clarinet & vocals) en Pierre Vervloesem (bass guitar). The BOGGAMASTA cd will be released in November 2017 on IGLOO Records label.
