Accordion maestro Dominique Paats started young: at the age of seven he was taking private lessons with the legendary Hubert Kicken. After training at the Maastricht Conservatory and Brabant Conservatory, his career took him to the first accordion chair for the Malando Orchestra, where he filled the air with tango melodies. His wide-ranging musical education puts Dominique at home across a multitude of genres.

Playing at DiJ with the Paulus Schäfer Trio, Dominique proves a formidable musical foil for Paulus’s improvisations. Their backgrounds might be as different as night and day, but get these two Dutch masters in a room together and Night and Day will just be the start of something special.
