Belgian ensemble Borokov Borokov guarantee raucous, energetic shows and feverish dancing. The Antwerp-based project offer a pounding mix of hi-NRG, punk, pop, hardcore, lounge music, and power ballads.

Absurd and bizarre, the trio boasts sympathetic mindfucks as they segue from sludgy acid flashbacks to brisk synth-pop. Borokov Borokov promise to deliver a riot of wiggy and weird synth lines, rhythms, and commentary.

Their output includes the ‘2 for the price of 1’ Enkel Duetten & Wachtmuziek, the queasy, playful Los Bollen and the colourful Eerlijk Delen, both released via Antwerp-based indie label Rotkat Records.

Borokov Borokov have toured in Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Germany and the USA (Best Kept Secret, Down The Rabbit Hole, Fusion Festival, Ancienne Belgique Braindance, Ampere Open Air /, Paradiso, CTM Festival, Coaxial LA, …)

“Growing up in the unurban periphery of Antwerp as children, the divorced parents of A. Omloop, B. Van den Eynden, N. Melis and Y. Tsakiridis would wake them up with sounds of sorrow and joy flowing from the speakers and would often take them to over-lit tearooms around their home villages to attend concerts of a wild variety of local artists.” (De Coster, G. (2016). Early influences on the development of unurban musical preferences. Berchem: EBO. p. 34)
