TEDxFlanders - The Golden Glows - Musical Performance

Calling The Golden Glows nostalgic would be silly: most of the music they're bringing is older than its musicians by a couple of decades. This three-person ensemble (plus one guitar) explores the entire vocal harmonic spectrum of forgotten radio hits, torch songs, early jazz, country blues, prison songs, gospel and folk traditionals with visible joy and enthusiasm. Startling in its simplicity, these songs serve us as a reminder of music at its purest. A few voices and a 6-stringed instrument are all it takes to transport us through time. Because sometimes the best ideas are also old ones. Recorded at the Antwerp Zoo on September 5th 2010. More information: About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
