With their unique and intoxicating blend of electronica, saudade, indie and folk music, Ão have rapidly become one of the most exciting acts in the rich and diverse Belgian music landscape. Debuting with single Mulher in late 2022, they made an immediate and big global impression, even reaching the influential Seattle based KEXP. A year later debut album ‘Ao Mar’ landed to rave reviews and popular acclaim, boasting summer sounds and ingenious, multifaceted and captivating tracks like Avó, Meninas and More. Singing in Portuguese and English, frontwoman Brenda Corijn entwines her mellifluous voice with the southern guitar of Siebe Chau, the ambient sounds of Jolan Decaestecker and the eclectic percussion of Bert Peyffers. Live the fourpiece are a mind-blowing and immersive experience, dazzling stages in Belgium, the Netherlands and beyond. At ESNS in Groningen, they deeply impressed the European music industry in attendance, resulting in, among other things, a spot on the roster of French booking agency AFX and an invitation to Reeperbahn Festival later this year. A fantastic 2023 was topped off with a Belgian music industry award nomination for best breakthrough act. Ão will be touring extensively in the coming months, continuing to sweep European audiences off their feet. Plenty of opportunities to witness the magic of Ão’s eclectic sounds in southern atmospheres.
