Surma’s universe explores sound environments and boundaries between musical genres. Her debut album “Antwerpen” was considered one of the best national albums of 2017. The single “Hemma” was also nominated for best song at the 2017 SPA Authors awards. In the following years she performed more than 250 times in fifteen countries, a little all over the world. Now, Surma goes up to the bandstand and prepares the sound for the evening in the village of Minde. As the light disappears, the sound rises and we say goodbye to this edition of the festival.
