Ambrozijn, a folk ensemble, exists since 1996. 'Ambrozijn' is a drink that made the gods immortal in greek mythology. Their aim is to make old songs immortal by playing them all over again.

Often, they manipulate the tradition, they cross boundaries, they re-arange old verses, they refresh old sounds.
Ambrozijn wants to move and to be moved by sounds, timbres, sudden changes in rhythm etc.

Their own flemish roots get a broader dimension with international accents and strong influences from their French inheritance.

They reach the beauty of sounds by using instruments like the sitar, the fiddle, marrocan percussion, the accordeon, etc.
