Made in Belgium: Daan updated

After the huge succes of the Manhay Album in 2009-2010, Daan re├»nvented him once again (previously from dance to more rock) when he went into the studio with a percussionist & cellist to rerecord some of his music in the "simple" version.  He toured with the album "simple" in theaters & churches to bring a much more pure & calm show.

In 2013 he launched the album LeFrancBelge , with lyrics all in French this time.  In the midst of the economic crisis, the song La Crise makes a clear musical link to Greece with the recognisable sound of the sirtaki in it...yet they are not blamed for the crisis (youtube has a version with Greek subtitles on it, so that might be clear).  I love the clip that reminds me visually to Ensor & Magritte for some reason.    You can still see & feel that Daan was originally a graphical designer.   Anyway, I love love La Crise as an earwurm!
