Filip Jordens - Hommage a Brel

How nice it is that there are still musicians who become addicted to the repertoire of the Belgian chansonnier Jacques Brel. As a result, we can still enjoy his music live almost half a century after his death.

The Flemish Filip Jordens is paying tribute to his compatriot this season. Of course he sings the most beautiful chansons by Jacques Brel, but secretly he is also a bit Brel.

Jordens moves, breathes and works up a sweat just like his hero did. Brel is back for a while.

Jacques Brel never quit.

From the press

"Generous and with love and passion." - The Telegraph

"His 'Hommage à Brel' is exactly what the title promises: a tribute. And you don't do honor to a spirit as idiosyncratic as Brel by blindly imitating him. Jordens has his own vision of Brel." - Het Parool

"Jordens does not try to break through the songs with stubborn arrogance. He respects the creator and the product. That is what you call a tribute. That is what you come for and you get to hear that from a formidable theater personality. Filip Jordens is as unique as Jacques Brel." - Dagblad van het Noorden
