Biography

Duo De Schepper-Sanczuk is a folk music duo created in 2015 by fiddle player Anouk Sanczuk and guitarist Florian De Schepper. Both were raised in families where playing an instrument at a young age was normal. As kids, they often went to folk music festivals and concerts. It made them decide to learn to play this style of music and so as teenagers, both joined their first folk band.

In 2015, after playing around Europe and beyond with different folk- and jazz projects, they decided to start up a fiddle-guitar duo. 2 years later Anouk and Florian finished their first album "Perron 12" with all proper written compositions in 2017. Having studied both classical and jazz music at the conservatory of music, the music of Florian & Anouk contains elements of different genres, often leaving space for improvisation without losing their folk roots. They have been touring around The Netherlands, France, Germany, Poland, Italy, Spain and Portugal. 

In November 2019, their second album "Port de Taipana" was born. The new record is the result of 2 years of traveling and playing together. Influences from different regions in Europe inspired them to their self-composed music for this album. Expect moments of intimacy, joy and energy with the strings of Florian and Anouk.
