DUPLEX is the meeting of two renowned musicians of the Belgian scene, Didier Laloy (diatonic accordion) and Damien Chierici (violin).
It is also the meeting of two generations and two different musical universes which at the beginning were not necessarily called to cross one day.
Didier has a background in traditional/world music and is known for having contributed to the revival of the diatonic accordion on an international level.
Damien, on the other hand, comes from the flourishing and creative Liège "pop/rock" scene.
In March 2020, the time of COVID-19 arrived and pushed the artists to reinvent themselves and explore new horizons. It was a great opportunity for them to embark on a new musical adventure and create DUPLEX where they merge their influences sprinkled with world music, electro-pop and cinematic atmospheres.
A dreamy, surreal and fantasized travel diary with a Belgian touch, made of multicoloured encounters and spicy flavours.
In order to complete the cast of the band, they brought along the excellent musicians Olivier Cox (drums) and Quentin Nguyen (keyboards).

The DUPLEX 5 Stars Team :
Poney Gross (Zig Zag World) joined the team to take charge of the management aspects, but also to bring all his artistic and musical experience on all aspects of the spectacle creation.
- The image and video broadcasting aspects are naturally an integral part of the DUPLEX project. The meeting with the young director/videographer Benjamin Grégoire convinced Didier and Damien to integrate him into the team.
- For the lighting design, we are lucky to be able to count on the talent and international experience of Michel De Bock (Contre-Jour)
- The iconoclastic sound engineer of the Belgian rock scene, Laurent Eyen alias "John Roo", who shapes the sound of the concert with his technical mastery and musical feeling.
- The stage director/actor Eric De Staercke brings his touch of madness to the show.
