From his connection with experimental pop to being as a bassist in ensembles it can be said that Lennart Heyndels has a true multifocal approach to his music making process.

Lynn Cassiers and Jozef Dumoulin are two of Belgium’s most authentic improvisers. Lilly Joel began as an ode to Dumoulin’s activity with Lidlboj, and along the way an entirely unique, dreamy style took shape. With Hildegard von Bingen as one of their sources of inspiration, Lily Joel immerses you in their characteristic and introspective sound world.
