Just like those three sides of the triangle in the band’s name, Brussels based trombone player Nabou Claerhout surrounded herself with her three favourite musicians to found her own group N∆BOU, back in 2016. With Trui Amerlinck on double bass, Roeland Celis on electric guitar and Mathias Vercammen on drums, this quartet unites some of the most diversely talented young musicians in the Benelux. N∆BOU rapidly made their way up in the newest jazz-&-beyondwave, catching the attention of both the audience and sector professionals thanks to their refreshing trombone sound, innovative use of effects and original approach of compositions.
With their much-lauded debut EP ‘Hubert’, released independently in 2019, N∆BOU was invited to play stages like Gent Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival (NL), Brussels Jazz Weekend, KAAP, Bel Jazz Fest, Hnita Jazz Club, De Spil, Jazz Station, Leuven Jazz Festival and many more.
N∆BOU’s stage career is already impressive as well, with shows at festivals such as the North Sea Jazz Festival, London Jazz Festival, Gent Jazz Festival, Jazz Middlheim, Brussels Jazz Weekend, Dranouter Festival, Gateshead International Jazz Festival, Gentse Feesten, in renown venues such as Bimhuis, De Roma, LantarenVenster, De Handelsbeurs, Flagey and during tours in Belgium, the Netherlands, UK and Japan.
Now signed to Outnote Records (Outhere), this promising quartet released its first full album ‘You Know’ on October 22nd 2021 as the start of an exciting new chapter.
