Billie Holiday’s birthday: 100 years
Today is the birthday of Billie Holiday; she was born a hundred years ago. That’s why Kurt Overbergh, ceo of Ancienne Belgique, wanted to celebrate her anniversary during Motel Mozaïque (this weekend). A musical hommage.
Billy is singing. The orchestra is docile. Our hearts become weak and our souls scratched. And we allow ourselves. Billie’s Choice is a double musical homage to the one and only Lady Day (1915-1959). Behind the decks: Kurt Overbergh – artistic director of Ancienne Belgique (AB) in Brussels.
At the moment, Overbergh is also working on a unique auditory road movie about Billie Holiday her life in Harlem, keep track of the developments here. Kurt Overbergh is going to play two sets; the first is a historical listening trip through Billie’s life, and for the second set, we strongly advice you to put on your dancing shoes.
