Celebration, the preparation of the concert.

The 4 musicians of the Belgian band "Belch" came to Thailand 45 days to prepare the concert together with hill tribes students of Maechan.

They soon became passionate about this unusual cultural and multi-ethnic exhange. Combining the best of both world's musical repertoire evolved from a challenge to a successful human exhange and a great creation.

The concert not only celebrates the birthday of H.M. The King, but also his friendship with former King Baudouin of Belgium and the special bonds which exist between the two countries.

The collaboration between the Belgian musicians and the disadvantaged hill tribes students symbolises the universal language of music and the fact that we all belong to only one tribe: The World's tribe.
