Belgian Christmas

Just a few hours before it's Christmas, right on time to discover two very original songs from young people from around the Conservatory in Antwerp. First one is 'Alone For Christmas' bij the Dutch-Belgian duo Eva Mareen and Julia Rosenhart. These two girls perfom as duo with a bit of electronic equipement, in Dutch we would call them 'kleinkunst', meaning its part music and part a bit of theatre or cabaret.  Their Xmas song has a great choreography and lots of (ugly) Christmas sweaters.

The other song by Blond feat Rendier has lyrics in Flemish and is sung from out of the viewpoint of Maria. It ends with a fine electronic dancebeat and also the video is intriguing. Vrolijk Kerstfeest!
