Meet Jade - story of a young lady and awesome musician from Belgium.
She looks unique and really special with her curly hair. She is always smiling and attracts people with her positive personality and natural beauty. Jade, 22 years, was born and raised in Ostend in Belgium. She currently studies international relations and politics in Ghent, Belgium and is about to end her studies. She loves coming back to her home city on the weekends spending time with family and friends. What she loves as well is South Africa. That´s where we met. In 2016 she came to South Africa to study in Belleville for a semester. South Africa has given her so much- it has opened her mind, heart and soul she says.
Another way of opening up her heart and soul is through her music- specifically her voice. At the age of 19 she started a band with 3 friends. They didn’t know each other very well but Jade brought them together due to a band competition. The story Jade then told me is sort of unbelievable. For the band contest the four young ladies had to write their own song and they had to choose a song to cover. The lady’s have never met before nor played together before but apparently their encounter was fate. It worked out from the first moment they met. Contest-wise they did an amazing job and won the preselection for their province. From that day on they have had lots of requests to play for the past year. As all of the girls were still studying and were keen on finishing their studies, none of the band members were able to get serious with a band career. The genre of their songs they call: Folkbalkancircusgypsyswingmeteenbeetjecowboychaos. Read Jades entire story and listen to their songs on my blog - link in profile.
