5 stars Zapp !is real Belgian world music. The Brussels metropole is transformed into music by a contemporary folk-orchestra that mingles traditional elements with electronics. Different areas of the capitol where a source of inspiration : the African quarter, a busy boulevard, a trainstation, a slaughterhouse, the quarter of the poor,....The result is a colourful and exciting cd were bagpipes are combined with saxophones, synths, accordeon, violins, guitar, drums,...and an electric mandolin gives the whole a ritmic and sunny push. The melodies happen inside an imaginative and stimulating soundworld. There are some links with e.g. the Penguin Café Orchestra, but the music is anyway very particular, might have been a soundtrack for a movie. A Brussels movie.

An essential

A Must !! Formidable Musicians !
