Celebrate Toots Thielemans' 100th birthday together with KBR and the musical instruments museum (MIM) in 2022!

On 29 April 2022, Toots Thielemans would have turned 100 years old. This Brussels native from the Marolles was an outstanding guitarist and one of the best harmonica players in the world. He played on stages all over the world. International stars such as Quincy Jones, Peggy Lee and Sting lined up to work with him. But no matter how far his international fame reached, Toots remained a Belgian at heart.

From 22 April 2022 until 31 August 2022, you can visit an immersive exhibition at KBR in which sound and music play the leading role.

The exhibition takes you through the rooms of the Palace of Charles de Lorraine, a unique 18th-century location in the heart of Brussels. Don't miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of Toots!
