The moment you play or sing music from a distant past back to life, two things happen: you make an instant, personal connection with that past, and at the same time you create something completely new and unique to that very moment.
The meeting of these seemingly opposite currents form the waves Thomas Baeté rides when he performs, researches, teaches and directs early music.
His instruments are the viola da gamba and the medieval fiddles, which he also uses to accompany his singing.
Based in Belgium, his musical activities brought him to over 20 European countries, as well as Morocco, Peru, Colombia, the US of A, Canada, Georgia and Japan.
Exploring his passion for 14th Century polyphony, he founded the ensemble ClubMediéval, and his project Transports Publics brings unknown 17th Century music to the light.
Thomas teaches in Brussels and Leuven.
