Biography : Aurélie Dorzée | Luc Pilartz | Didier Laloy




A trio with Luc Pilartz fiddle and bagpipes, Aurélie Dorzée fiddle and Didier Laloy diatonic accordion. Move by their passion for folkmusic, these three musicians have been working together for nearly 6 years. The interpretation and refined arragments of Trio Trad cross the vast landscapes of Europe's musical traditions; deep melodies from Scandinavia or Ireland, bourrées from Auvergne, haunting dances from Hungary and Bulgary. They leave room for improvisation and own compositions. The music is beautiful and wild like those remote places that only have dreams as their frontiers. They sing the wide hungarian Puszta, the rough mountains of  Val Resia , the loneliness of the norvegian fjords... An imaginary trip where joy and the emotion join in.


The Trio played in the most different venues. Their collaboration with « Live Music Now » created by Yehudi Menuhin gave them the opportunity to perform in hospitals, prisons, psychiatric institutions, etc. They played at festivals in Huy, Héron Lavoir, at the Midi Minimes, at the Festival of Flanders, Puur Muziek, at the Tentation, at the "Fêtes de Wallonie" or the Gentse Feesten, in a large number of culture centra in Belgium. They where members of Panta Rhei during 5 years. They recorded 3 CD's with that band and crossed the whole of Europe and Northern Africa : Denmark, Germany, Tunisia, Marocco, Spain, Portugal, France, the Netherlands. They where part of concerts with José Van Dam and Bernard Foccroule in presence of Her Majesty the Queen Fabiola. In 2001, after they won a contests of the Jeunesses musicales de France with a performance specially adapted for children, they toured through France (the South East and the South West, the central regions and the North East).
