Belem is a meeting of the unexpected: a striking combination of the placid eloquence of the cello and the rhythmic edginess of the accordion. The duo is forging a new type of chamber music that draws on folk and classical traditions. The result is a spirited sound world for the 21st-century — reflective yet edgy; sensuous yet melancholic; spontaneous yet considered.  Both charismatic virtuosi, Didier Laloy and Kathy Adam herald a fresh approach to established musical traditions.
