Hands in Motion opens a playground around percussions. Darbuka, gongs, kalimbas, riqq, doholla, bendirs, udu,… These are just some of the instruments that make up their sound universe. This percussion trio which brings together Simon Leleux (Fabrizio Cassol / I Silenti, Refugees for Refugees), Robbe Kieckens (Lamekan Ensemble, Myrddin De Cauter), Célestin Massot.

Together they create a limitless sound universe, mixing acoustic percussion and electronic soundscapes. From Senegal to Eastern Europe, from Turkey to India, from the classical conservatory to nomadic people, it is nourished by all their influences that Hands in Motion juggles with the codes of tradition to create a new space of expression, resolutely current and innovative.
