Dez Mona starts as a duo between double bass player Nicolas Rombouts and vocalist Gregory Frateur. They find themselves in their mutual roots of jazz, drama, experimental and spirituals. The surprising unique experience of their first concert at Recyclart in 2003 convinces them to continue working together. Shortly after Gregory and Nicolas start writing their own songs, Dez Mona is born. They choose a path of intense playing and create a strong live-reputation in the Belgian underground. This results in three concerts at Belgium’s most famous concerthall, Ancienne Belgique in Brussels.
