An exclusive and free concert organized by the MIM and The Legacy of Toots Thielemans vzw following the 2nd prize won by the Belgian Szabadság duo at the Toots Challenge last June. 

The Toots Challenge was organized as part of the exhibition Toots 100. The Sound of a Belgian Legend., currently taking place at the KBR and of which the MIM is a partner. The aim was to challenge musicians of different generations to work with the legacy of Toots.

Szabadság gathers Ariane Cohen-Adad, violinist franco-sephardi and Jefferson Louvat, mandolinist belgo-hungarian. Together they cross their routes blending music from Eastern Europe, Klezmer-Balkans with those from Northern America, Bluegrass and Irish folk.
