Author, singer, composer and producer, Awir Leon has released three EPs and two albums, Giants and Man Zoo, in which he explores his writing from all angles: from electronic experimentation to minimalist ballads.
Also a professional dancer, he has collaborated with many choreographers, for whom he has subsequently composed original musical creations, notably Emanuel Gat and Amala Dianor. Awir means "sky" in Gaelic, and his music has many influences that ignore borders. His artistic and musical journey caught the attention of Woodkid, who invited him last year to be part of his band and gave him the opportunity to open all the shows on his upcoming tour.
Ola is the stage name of Olamide Polet. A 23-year-old singer-songwriter based in Brussels who in 2021 unveiled a very convincing 1st EP entitled "My favorite mistakes".
Raised on the Beatles, John Mayer, Radiohead and many more by a jazz drumming father, Ola has been singing since childhood. He took his first steps in music in 2019.He was originally predestined for a career as a professional basketball player... but after his NBA dream in the US went awry, it was in music that he found his greatest comfort. Ola is completely self-taught and had a very noticeable stint in The Voice Belgium before signing with Warner Music in 2020. His last single “Blue” was released in summer 2022.
