»Onze Danses Pour Combattre La Migraine« (»Eleven Dances for Combatting Migraine«) was the service-oriented title of the Belgian avant-garde pop project Aksak Maboul, which was already experimenting in different genres in 1977 and anticipated many musical developments of the eighties. Finally, after several years and last year’s cancellation due to illness, we’ve managed to bring the band to Berlin. Mastermind Marc Hollander, who also runs the legendary Belgian label Crammed Discs, will also be featured in a talk and give a workshop in our Nachwuchs programme. Live, Aksak Maboul are a family affair: along with his wife Véronique Vincent, singer of the most influential Belgian band The Honeymoon Killers, Marc Hollander composed the double album »Figures«, whose songs have meanwhile been remixed by The Notwist or Cate Le Bon. Together they create an irresistible mix of electronica, atmospheric pop, crude jazz and modern classical.
