"Belem" - BELEM (Didier Laloy & Kathy Adam)

BELEM (Didier Laloy & Kathy Adam)

"Belem, a small bead of sound and atmosphere, to whom we listen with great pleasure – and then we listen again with even more attention and greater pleasure. [...] The sound of the album is superb. The cello is said to be the instrument that is closest to the human voice. And Didier Laloy brings in the voice of the accordion, so much so that the instrument itself breathes.”
The MAD EVENING, Oct. 2014 (BE)

"Dynamic, moving, haunting, footprints of great sweetness: these are real stories that are being told, over subtle dialogues, melancholic embraces and pursuits, the diatonic accordion of Didier Laloy and the cello of Kathy Adam." LA LIBRE, December 2014

"It's the mad dog that meets the nobility" LARSEN, Jan. 2015 (BE)

"Time shared with them, their compositions, the attention they pay to each other, and to their instruments, is a time when life begins to be lived differently. There is an enormous amount of poetry and tenderness in the sounds they make and the way they cherish what makes them. "

"An elegant meeting between the classical cellist, mischievous Kathy Adam, and the expressive and unlimited diatonic player Didier Laloy. Great art without artifice." LA SCENE, spring 2015 (FR)

“The feeling is that of an enhancement to the folklore forms of improvisation, like a try to lift it further towards a more contemporary classical music level. It is the space of improvisation between the duo, adding harmonies, rhythmic stimulations or varieties in improvisation is perhaps the most sophisticated part of that, showing the best of their talents.” PSYCHEDELICFOLK oct. 2014 (UK)
