In the 1980s Ghent’s music scene became internationally famous for — coincidentally or not — groups with an international line-up of musicians. Ghent singer-songwriter Sioen goes on a journey of (re)discovery, taking in the music cafés Damberd, Trefpunt and The Duke, where musicians from Ghana, Algeria and Latin-America wowed audiences in the 1980s. Follow Sioen through the city.
