The group MISST originated as an acapella-formation in 2017, as the Flemish deputy of an international Ferrara-busker-festival in Italy (at the end of august). Meanwhile evolved to a quality ensemble, they developed a program filled with rich musical traditions of an infinite Europe. With a lot of enthusiasm and finesse, they turned traditional music into our current juncture.
In a time with a lot of debate about Europe and people longing for their culture and identity, MISST brings a story about uniqueness and connectedness. Their MISST.EU-CD highlights vocal elements of Europe and focusses on the rich cultural diversity of Europe in a connecting musical project.

In the run-up to releasing their debut album, Belgian band MISST released their third single: Sur l’eau on June 4th 2021.
Sur l’eau is the catchy third single of the Vocal formation MISST. Through call and response it tells the absurd tale of the chicken of Colin. Beautiful voices, snappy beats, a metamorphosis of a traditional song into a cheerful folk-pop version.
Vor í Vaglaskógi is a wonderful testimony about the forest of Vaglaskógi, Iceland. It talks about the growing of beautiful birch trees in spring. After you’ve visited this magical place, your dreams come true. The Belgian band MISST heard versions of this song by Icelandic singers, and they fell in love with the beautiful atmosphere of the melody and language. Hearing MISST’s version, with its strong emphasis on vocal harmonies, makes you dream of this silent forest. It announces spring, a better, peaceful and maybe even magical time…
