In 2003 Pascale Rubens and Toon Van Mierlo formed Naragonia. There's no compromise to the music they make, which goes straight to your heart; free from all conventions. Their particular sensitivity towards strong melodies allows the duo to create their own unique sound – acknowledged by the phrase “The Sound Of Naragonia” The continual innovative quirkiness of their music is infectious and soon Naragonia was to become one of the most loved and wanted folk bands in Europe. They play at just about every big festival and are regular guests on the national Belgian radio (Klara, Radio 1, La première) as well as performing on national television (RTBF).
Their impact on the European folkscene cannot be underestimated. They are an inspiration to numerous musicians and many of their numbers have been covered or recorded. Not just by Belgian musicians but also by those abroad from Portugal to Russia, from Sweden to the USA... Some of Naragonia's numbers become real signature tunes.
Over the past years different collaborations within the Arts have come to fruition. Theatre (Tal en Thee and Theater de Spiegel), musicians and bands from abroad (Fernhill, Andy Cutting, Paulo Lameiro, Gregory Jolivet...) have all taken part in these ventures. All rich encounters; encompassing travel to new lands to meet new people and to form new tales.
