Debut album by the Oorkaan Ensemble

The musicians of the Oorkaan Ensemble bring a new sound to the horizon of Dutch ensembles! The debut album 'Shimmering' by the Oorkaan Ensemble was released in December 2023. A musical milestone in the flying start to their career. 

Michela, Michele, Robbrecht and Veysel treat us to a wonderful musical trip with this album. This young, multi-talented ensemble presents an extraordinary repertoire of works that at first glance are miles apart, but because of the way the ensemble plays, belong together as a matter of course.

The ensemble explains: "When the Oorkaan Ensemble was formed two years ago, the desire was already expressed to release an album. We waited for the right moment and that moment is now. All the experience we gained in our productions Whoop Whoop(s)! and Gong and the four noses, has been incorporated into this album."
