Jacques Brel is kind of a big deal. And Silo has been in love with him for almost forever — we’ve had his songs on our playlist since 2005.

Jacques the lad grew up in a family that owned a cardboard box empire, but went on to write some of the most extraordinary songs of the last century. Like mini three-act plays told in three minutes, his songs are timeless anthems which brim with attitude and heart-on-your-sleeve expressionism.

In his world, life can hurt, youth can die, understanding can heal and love can change everything. From Amsterdam to Ne Me Quitte Pas, these are songs worth singing. They’re narratives that transcend time and place. They connect.

Voted the #1 Best Cultural Experience by Metro in 2012, our take on his legendary songbook has been journeying up and down the country ever since. In February, we’re taking on the NZ Festival in Wellington and then, for one wonderful night, we’re barging into the Great Hall for a miraculous moment.

Presented in collaboration with
The EDGE.
