An evening with Sam (2009)
You can’t pin Sam Vloemans down to one musical genre. The past ten years he has swum through many musical waters.
Born in Curaçao, here he fell in love with latin and soul. Raised in Europe he took on jazz & funk.
Creative centipede? You bet.
In “An evening with” Sam presents an anthology of the past decade & shows a glimpse of what’s to come in the future.

Bord du Nord (2008)
Sam found the inspiration for the music of Bord du Nord during a stay in Paris.
The city’s unique atmosphere has given birth to a romantic, melancholic sound.
The rich backgrounds and diverse approaches of the band members create
a singularly original mix, influenced by French chanson, Klezmer music,
Tango, Musette, classical music and jazz.

Upon request of HETPALEIS, a theatre house for children, young people and artists in the heart of Antwerp, the young trumpet player Sam Vloemans has made a new composition for everyone aged four and over. He is inspired by lullabies from all corners of the world, the capricious course of sleep, and the oddities of the dream world.

Water, air, earth & fire (2004)
Sam’s first production for theatre house HETPALEIS.
Trumpet player Sam Vloemans plays his musical interpretation of the four elements. He uses different music styles to bring the typical characteristics of the elements to life.
The music can drip gently into your ear and then burst out into a stormy, swinging jazz number. The leading trumpet player is accompanied by four first-rate musicians who contribute to creating the right sound and colour.

This seven piece band starts from pointed jazz themes and consequently brews an easily inflammable mixture of latin and funk: an energic fusion that aimes at the limbs and may lead to a frenzied ‘descarga’.
