About Scarbo

Brussels based saxophone quartet Scarbo, derived from the poem by Aloysius Bertrand about a small fiend hiding in the dark, reappearing at his own desire.

After each having completed a unique international trajectory, Pieter, Nele, Bart and Asagi found a common passion for music and the arts. 

With Brussels as their hideout, they use the versatility of the saxophone to colaborate with artists and composers. With stellar dancer Yuika Hashimoto (part of Anne Teresa Dekeersmaecker's company ROSAS)  they created the  interdisciplinary performance Pagine > which they performed in Belgium and the Netherlands. 

Scarbo brings together four distinct cultural and artistic backgrounds and tries to create a climate of creativity and interaction.
