Manu Louis

Manu Louis

Manu Louis is Belgian, lives in Berlin and escapes from winter in Spain. He travels with a village of electronic instruments and video projections from pop stars or animals to deliver passionate performances that eventually switches gears into an impromptu discotheque that gets the audience moving. His music mixes high and low culture to create provocative and decontextualized juxtapositions. His general blueprint remains the same throughout all of his efforts, but the ingredients he uses may vary: from dissident chanson française, genial dilettante, avant-garde composer, new beat, old hit, art-pop & hard bop. Cream Parade, his new album (Igloo Records) is a disoriented walk led by synthesizers and follows Kermesse Machine (2017) his first album. The last two years he performed at over 200 festivals and clubs across Europe and Asia. Apart from his solitary activities, ultimately Manu also has composed music for the 30 piece ensemble Orchestra Vivo, L’Orchestre de chamber Liège, Plastic Fanfare (a group of 200 winds & percussions), Spanish artist Escif and Chinese band Dawanggang..
