Trad Music

Remi Kesteman has been dancing for as long as he can remember, and balfolk specifically since 2006. Born in Belgium, adopted by Portugal, his many backgrounds allow him to quickly connect with a variety of different cultures, which he believes is the essence of balfolk. His teaching methods are fed by a number of activities: from dance and music to the martial and the performing arts.

Remi has taught in several festivals, including Andanças, Tradidanças (PT),  Gennetines (FR), Prague Balfolk Immersion (CZ), Boombal (BE), Lovembal, (PL) and Venezia Balla (IT), amongst other.

He’s also a founding member of the groups Fahrenheit (2019) and Duo Zmôz (2020).



Created in march 2019, Fahrenheit is an ode to both modern and traditional breton culture.
