Erdig groovende Jazz Musik aus Luxemburg.

"Seit vielleicht 15 Jahren ist eine Generation junger Jazzmusiker aus Luxemburg erfolgreich, auch und gerade international." - Martin Laurentius | JazzThing

Pol Belardi, diplomierter Bassist, doch vor allem Multiinstrumentalist, Konzeptionalist und einer von gerade mal etwas über einer halben Million Luxemburgern, gelingt es auch 2019 das Gehör des Konzertgängers mit Modern Jazz zu erobern.

Die vier Musiker der Pol Belardi´s Force scheuen sich nicht ihren großen musikalischen Hintergrund auszuschöpfen, ihre klassische und jazzmusikalische Ausbildung heranzuziehen, einhergehend mit einer ausgeprägten Offenheit für Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop und Elektronische Musik.

Resultat ist ein erfrischender Mix moderner improvisierter Musik, geprägt von Pol Belardis originalen Kompositionen, getrieben von stetig starkem Groove, exquisiten Harmonien, lyrischen Melodien, dem klugen Einsatz von Takt, Spannung und Zurückhaltung, facettenreichen Launen, einer satten Portion interaktivem Zusammenspiel der Band mit garantiertem Spaß Faktor.

Am 18. Oktober 2019 veröffentlichte Pol Belardi´s Force ihr zweites Album "Organic Machines".

From the moment Pol played his first note on an instrument, sometime in the 90's in a small town in Luxembourg called Tétange, his curiosity was awakened to create music. After extensive tutelage at local schools in classical percussion, piano, drums and theory, a fair amount of classical orchestra as well as rock band experience and a good first imprint in the local scene, he set sails to study in Brussels and Amsterdam, earning a master's degree "cum laude" in bass guitar in 2014. He has forged himself a strong credo consisting of two main ingredients: polyvalence and creativity.

His numerous projects vary in both conception of style and the instrument(s) he plays, and since the first childhood composition try-outs (which were mainly transcribing and rearranging video-game music), he has grown to a prolific composer who is not afraid of taking advantage of his diverse musical background. Now back in Luxembourg, in the heart of Europe, Pol leads his own bands Force (a modern jazz quartet/quintet) and Urban Voyage, an 11-piece crossover mammoth project based in Amsterdam. In addition to that, he is a member of DillenDub, a co-lead electro-groove-jazz trio.

He is also a welcomed sideman on the bass guitar for Pascal Schumacher, MetroMara (DE), Little Known Facts (NL) as well as on the vibraphone for Nelson Ogliastri's Birth and Death of a Star and many other projects. Willing to share his experience with studious young music lovers, Pol is teaching in local music schools, and to keep up to date on what is happening in an around Luxembourg, he regularly hosts a radio show at Radio 100,7 FM.

After some years, he got more and more into jazz music and especially into drums. At the age of 16, he got his first drum lesson in the same conservatory and few months later he won the "Young European Soloist Competition" in Luxembourg and became one of the last 20 finalists of the "European Drummer Competition" in Germany.

A year later, he got accepted as a full-time bachelor student for jazz drums at the Royal Conservatory of the Hague (NL) where he studied with Joost Patocka, Stefan Kruger, Frits Landesbergen and Erik Ineke.

In 2009 he moved to Amsterdam to finish his bachelor's degree with Marcel Serierse and Martijn Vink at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. In 2010 he won prestigious competitions as a sideman such as the "Prinses Christina Concours" and the "Grote Prijs van Nederland".
