Summer 2019


With the holidays ahead we announce our summer concerts. After some well-deserved rest, we're back on stage with B.I.G. at the MAfestival Bruges and Llibre Vermell at the Eté Mosan Festival. We also make time for the creation of the brand new production Time Crawls with melodies by Jowan Merckx, set by composers Marnix De Cat and Martin Valcke for a new kind of broken consort.

CD release BALSAM


Zefiro Torna releases 'Balsam' at Antarctica Records, successor to the productions ‘Les Tisserands’ and ‘O, Monde Aveugle!’. The project unites musicians who are experts in various genres such as old, ethnic and jazz music. This time the mysterious forces of plants, flowers and herbs formed the starting point for the programme.

"An unctuous and euphonious balsam for the mind and the soul. A truly intoxicating experience." - thus Stefan Grondelaers. Have a look at our trailer for a first impression.

Order the CD here - for yourself or as a Christmas gift. And for extra listening pleasure we offer the trilogy 'Tisserands - O Monde Aveugle - Balsam' for a small price.

Launch museum podcast Hof van Busleyden


From 9 November, you can discover the Hof van Busleyden museum in Mechelen through the eyes of three idiosyncratic storytellers. A musician translates Burgundian life into music, a classicist recounts the rebirth of the Court of Busleyden, and a psychiatrist connects past and present. The musical part is told by Jurgen De bruyn (the other museum podcasts were compiled by Patrick De Rynck and Dirk de Wachter), in an audio directed by the young radio producers Wederik De Backer and Lucas Derycke.
