Ardalus is an early music ensemble (Belgium) with a great passion for baroque music; especially 'forgotten' music form the Low Countries.
To bring this music back to life, recorderplayer Karen Ketels (founder and inspirer of Ardalus) digs deep into the history of the Low Countries, and gives new life to wonderful sounds from the past.
For this, Ardalus adapts forces to the different programs. All performances are attentive to historical authenticity and are therefore played on copies of historical instruments. One of Ardalus's objectives is to approach ancient music as faithfully as possible, keeping in mind the general public. This makes for unique concerts, with solid underpinnings and a great individuality.
