Dyad (Didier Laloy & Adrien Tyberghein)

Didier Laloy and Adrien Tyberghein, two outstanding musicians, form a duo born of the desire to combine two seemingly opposing universes: so-called “serious” music and “light” music.

Their duo breaks the stylistic boundaries by mixing traditional music, classical music, rock and electronic music. Their repertoire consists of original music revealing all the richness of this collaboration. From crazy rhythms to expressive melodies, these compositions take the audience to the crossroads of different worlds.

Didier dreamed of being able to shake hands with a conductor when coming on stage. Adrien dreamed of improvising on traditional themes from elsewhere. Their dreams came true in this atypical, visceral and definitely rock-influenced duo.
