Saragon is a project of guitarist and ud player Peter Verhelst. The core of the group is a trio with Anneleen Boehme on double bass and voice, and Yves Peeters on percussion. The compositions of Verhelst are initially close to Arabic-Andalusian culture, but there is room for more western harmonies. Improvisations come over these harmonies or over a tonal center, which strengthen the link with the Oriental tradition. Saragon is a musical ode to the beauty of life, the multicultural society and the gifts of this world to each of us.
