festival   CITADELIC #14

   young jazz talent plays for the non jazz believers . electronic kraut jazz

Dishwasher_ is the Ghent jazz band of Arno Grootaers (Pavlove), Werend Van Den Bossche (Suura) and Louise van den Heuvel (Supernova). Together the trio wants to break down the walls between genres and treat music lovers to an ingenious sound that they themselves label as krautjazz. The trio has a love for computer music and uses their traditional instruments in such a way that the link with classical jazz is still hard to find. Their vibrant, improvised live sets are unpredictable and allow the audience to live in the moment.

Werend, Louise & Arno, who met at the Jazz department of the Royal Conservatory of Ghent, decided to start a project where electronics and rockmusic are the foundations of their improvisations. In February 2021, they made it to finals of 'Sound of Sprouts'. Their set at the Ancienne Belgique was more then praised by the jury and the band won triumphatically the first prize.
