05 Jul Meet Jade – story of a local from Belgium
You can only get to know a country by meeting its locals.
May I introduce you to Jade, a local from Belgium.
Young Lady with a passion for South Africa
Another way of opening up her heart and soul is through her music- specifically her voice. At the age of 19 she started a band with 3 friends. They didn’t know each other very well but Jade brought them together due to a band competition. The story Jade then told me is sort of unbelievable. For the band contest the four young ladies had to write their own song and they had to choose a song to cover. The lady’s have never played together before but apparently their encounter was fate. It worked out from the first moment they met. Contest-wise they did an amazing job and won the preselection for their province. From that day on they have had lots of requests to play for the past year. As all of the girls were still studying and were keen on finishing their studies, none of the band members were able to get serious with a band career. The genre of their songs they call: Folkbalkancircusgypsyswingmete
Can music change and move people?
