Alternative Music from Belgium

This week Featuring Belgium

When researching alternative bands from Belgium I was pleasantly surprised to find so many great alternative musicians.  I wonder why there have not been more internationally recognized bands from Belgium.  One of the most famous singers from Belgium was Soeur Sourire (the singing nun) who had a world wide #1 hit in 1963 with “Dominque”.  Although you have the cultural crossroads of Belgium where the Flemish-Dutch speaking and the Walloon French speaking traditions mix, I found most of the bands to have English names and sing in English.  I hope you will join me on the week of Belgium music and be surprised as I was at the quality bands this country has to offer.
