KEXP

Stromae Performs “Formidable”

Hear the Belgian singer, rapper and songwriter perform live on KEXP.

November 10, 2016

KEXP presents Stromae performing “Formidable” live in the KEXP studio. Recorded April 6, 2015.

Captivating our ears and showcasing why he is a global superstar, Belgian singer, rapper and songwriter Paul Van Haver, better known by his stage name Stromae, stormed into KEXP to spread his infectious grooves in this stunning live session. Laced with pop hooks, nineties electronics and Afro-tinged rhythms that highlighted his 2013 Racine Carrée release, Stromae combines light, danceable beats with complex, introspective lyrics. Mingling harsh subjects and tragicomic narratives, this worldly, insightful strain of music challenges the narrow-minded belief that deep or serious dance music is an oxymoron.
