Mojo Jojo is a Brussels based quartet founded by Emanuel Van Mieghem that invites lyrical melodies that are driven by deeply rooted pulsations.

They discovered that they have a very strong and dynamic connection that translates itself both on a personal and a musical level.

Under the influence of artists from the contemporary jazz scene, such as Aaron Parks, Mark Turner or Harmen Fraanje, the  bandleader of this quartet writes her music playing with colorful harmonies, floating within a large sonic spectrum of acoustic textures. When performing together, these four musicians navigate between strong melodies full of character and freely improvised sounds.

Voilà 15 ans que ces deux improvisateurs passionnés se retrouvent régulièrement pour de nouvelles aventures. Après le quintet « Progressive Patriots » de Hasse Poulsen, le groupe « All Set » (codirigé par le saxophoniste et Ingrid Laubrock) ou encore le trio avec Marc Ducret, c’est aujourd’hui en duo (ou plutôt en trio) que nous les retrouverons dans le cadre de leur tournée d'automne ; ils nous proposeront une musique totalement improvisée, nourrie par toutes les formes de jeux qu’ils ont expérimenté au travers de leurs différentes collaborations. Pour cette soirée, ils ont aussi décidé d'inviter Sylvain Debaisieux !

For this ensemble one body of work has been created thus far called Embracing Asymmetry which will be recorded in December 2023. The work focuses on the transitional process of improvising between two sound objects. Here the performer is improvising variations of a composed object whilst simultaneously seeking to slowly introduce a new composed element. A photogram is photographic technique that produces a negative shadow image. The transformation of a real object into a shadow is analogous to the transformation from a composed sound object into an improvised variation. Embracing Asymmetry also explores post-colonial identity through the intersection of reality, delusion and the incomprehensible.
