PILAR ASAP LIVE SESSIONS
Pilar ASAP sessions
The third PILAR ASAP Festival once again knew an early end due to this pandemic that is still overwhelming us daily. Pilar's doors will remain closed for a while. In the meantime, we do not want to leave you out in the cold. Nor all artists involved. That is why we invited all canceled acts who were part of this Fluid Identity Edition for a live session and conversation in our Pilar Box. 
The result: a varied series of ASAP SESSIONS. 
Discover them here.

PILAR ASAP SESSION #1: 
Chibi Ichigo
Our first session is brought to you by the talented Chibi Ichigo. Next to BANGZOET and CHIBUMI, she brings her brand new lockdown single 'SUSSEND' live. We talked about what “Fluid Identity” means to her, about music as therapy, the collaboration with DJ Bouba, and future projects.

PILAR ASAP SESSION #2:
 run SOFA
90ies kids Antoine and Julien bring a solid live set to Pilar. Discover the roots of run SOFA and their main influences in this second ASAP SESSION.


PILAR ASAP SESSION #3: 
CasseCouilles
Only four out of five, but just as intense. Discover the eclectic session of CasseCouilles in our Pilar Box. Without guitarist Stan. Because he does not belong to the bubble. CasseCouilles brings avant-garde nonsense. A stream of noise, a thunderous sound, and infectious laughter that will amaze you.

PILAR ASAP SESSION #4: 
DOLLY BING BING
“My life and my art are one Gesamtkunstwerk." Get to know the glamorous alien pop star DOLLY BING BING in the fourth PILAR ASAP LIVE SESSION.

PILAR ASAP SESSION #5: 
Tumba
There are these moments when an apparent setback turns out into something even better than the original starting point. When one door closes, another one opens. That's just how we roll… This session was the result of such a surprising turn around. During the recording of the PILAR ASAP SESSIONS, Elise Kiambi supported us by conducting the first interviews. However, as the spoken word artist 'Tumba', Elise also embodies and embraces the ASAP festival theme "Fluid Identity". We are therefore very happy to share this session. Recorded unplanned, without preparation, driven by the moment. It became a very special one.

Elise "Tumba" Kiambi (1999) is a spoken word artist with Congolese and Angolese roots that have sprouted in Brussels. Retracing her steps and reconnecting to roots using imagery and imagination, she hopes to provide a safe space for her self-expression and that of others. Tumba regards the personal as public and explores the perception of Self through the eyes of Others. Starting from her own experiences with being uprooted, family ties, and cuts that are still healing, her work is a collection of afterthoughts that refuse to fit into the bigger picture.

PILAR ASAP # 6: 
Ruby Grace
Pilar presents Ruby Grace: the Belgian pop princess who likes to mix kitsch elements with electro-pop beats and soul. This session gives an insight into her different obsessions, why she loves the 90ies and above all her incredible live performance with unreleased track "Gameboy" as the icing on the cake.

PILAR ASAP SESSION #7: 
Susobrino
Pilar resident Susobrino has been working hard on new music the past couple of months, discovering different corners and flavors at our rehearsal room/studio ‘Barak Lili M’. This live set, recorded exclusively for Pilar, contains unreleased material made during this residency period.
