This friday Rebel Up! SebCat is playing a special gig in Brussels.
Not a Halloween party, but a party for the *sans papiers* residents of the Petit Chateau / Klein Kasteeltje refugee centre (the old barrack for military service), organised by the Recyclart to lighten up their residence in Brussels. Some of the residents have been waiting on their legal status for several years already, meaning they can’t work in the meantime, shame on the authorities and politicians for such degrading treatment.
The focus will not be on SebCat’s tune selection, but on the music that the people can bring through phone simcards, usb and mp3 players to have the songs of their choice played for a true people’s party. So far we know that in the 200 residents, there’s a broad scope of nationalities, from Syrians to Egyptians, Kurdish, Afghani’s, Bosnians, Albanians, Eritreans and more.
from 20 – 23h
27 bvd du Neuvième de Ligne / 9de Linielaan 27

Last friday our nightly Rebel Up! dj showcase set at Womex went quite well, such fun we had
Before this in the afternoon, we had an amazing multi dj session at the Wapapura solar disco as part of the Global Club Music network that we are part of, with dj’s such as Kosta Kostov, Boris Viande, Sauvage FM, Darius Darek, Sound Culture, Esta Polyesta, Criolina, Dala Dala, Miriam Kokako music, Evviva Show and even a special guest performance of Carmen (Gato Preto!!) . The whole 2 hour set got recorded, check it out here! (Rebel Up! SebCat at 22 mins)
then our showcase in Sala Capitol. So nice to see all the true party folks staying n dancing until the very end of our rough world hopping set. Near the end we did a special improvisation with our Canadian friends Tamar (vocals) & Briga (on violin) who improvised on our balkan tallava beats. We will soon upload the mix and some clips of our set. Here some pics >>
and we’re back from our succesful Canada tour! It was a lot of fun, made new friends and got in touch with local global music networks, so in short; it was awesome (to use a Canadian keyword for everything). See pics here.
Soon we will again be off for a small tour, down south to Spain and Portugal!
We have been selected to play a dj showcase set at WOMEX world music expo in pilgrim city Santiago de Compostela (Galicia) on friday 24 Oct. So yeah, let’s go for it. We also will be present at the day expo as part of the Global Club Music Network together with some other good global dj’s. Find us at stand 1.86
Afterwards we will travel down to the beautiful city of Porto, where on saturday night we will play a dj/vj set at the nice Passos Manuel cinema venue, followed on sunday by a special evening dinner listening set in the arty Miss’Opo hotel.
Bem vindo e até logo!
