Thu 23 Nov: Turkish Pyschedelic Groove night with Derya Yildirim & Grup Şimşek concert, afterparty with Rebel Up, Radio Martiko & Front Chaud

A very special night of Bonnefooi Invites, in collaboration with Rebel Up, with some very special guests
Derya Yildirim & Grup Şimşek (TR/DE/FR/IT/GB)

Young singer/multi-instrumentist Derya Yıldırım teams up with fantastic drummer Greta Eacott (G-Bop Orchestra / One-Take records) and 3 quarters of Catapulte Records’ Orchestre du Montplaisant (Antonin Voyant, Graham Mushnik, Andrea Piro). With members originating from Turkey, Germany, France, Italy and Great Britain, Grup Şimşek (pronounce « Shimshek ») encapsulates the Outernational generation.

Upon hearing Turkey’s Derya Yildirim, it only takes a few seconds until your soul willingly allows itself to be bowled over. This singer/multi-instrumentalist namely possesses a unique voice that exudes both melancholy and longing. Musically, she is accompanied by Grup Şimşek that excels with its hypnotic Anatolian psych-pop. Turkish folk, grooves and psychedelica. Aside from own compositions, Derya Yildirim also interprets gems by Turkish artists like (protest)singer Selda Bağcan, rock pioneer Barış Manço, Moğollar and the Turkish poet Nazım Hikmet. After their amazing performance at the 10 Years of Rebel Up party in Recyclart last march and more recently at the Feeerieen festival by Ancienne Belgique in August, be sure to get in on time for a good spot to shake & cry with us.

Listen to her 4 song EP ‘Nem Kaldi’ , co-released by Les Disques Bongo Joe & Catapulte Records in early 2017, to capture her deeply melancholic voice and the eloquently groovy sounds by Grup Şimşek.

Sat 18 Nov > El Pulpo Collective goes Afro Latino @ La Tentation, w/ Ussu N’djai + Pigmaliao

On saturday, the return of El Pulpo collective with Rebel Up in La Tentation.
A very special Afro Latino concert & party night with an Afro Portuguese touch, with the band Ussu N’Djai & The New Balansa from Guinee Bissau/Senegal/Amsterdam and producer/DJ Pigmaliao from Brasil and more surprises.

Ussu N’djai & The New Balansa
the Amsterdam-based group of Ussumane ‘Balansa’ N’djai brings an exciting mix of different West-African music styles (m’balax, m’gumbeh, Afro-Mandingo, Carribean reggae, salsa and funk.) Balansa composed the songs with texts in different West-African languages such as Wolof, Mandingo, Creole, French, English and Portugese, a true afro latin mixture with cultural roots.

Pigmalião (BR)
Pigmalião is the materialization of the reference from the label Frente Bolivarista and remains in constant transformation alongside the label release narrative. Frente Bolivarista has made a stellar rise over the past year to be one of the labels to watch for the future of Latin America music.  Brazilian musical legacy has always seemed somewhat set apart from the rest of the continent but the label, alongside the growing links between booming São Paulo and Buenos Aires, Quito or Lima shows that the tide is changing. It is indeed the becoming, and going even further than, the musical version of Bolivar’s dream: a global collaboration of new, inter infected, border hopping sounds shaping the future of Latin American music.

Fri 14 July Rebel Up Soundclash @ OCCII, A’dam w/ *live band* Apichat Pakwan (Thailand) + more

What a great vibe in Rotterdam last thursday at Pantropical / Los Mirlos concert and sunday the Wundergarten at Ruigoord. This friday is our final night in OCCII before they close for the holidays.

Special 10″ EP release party concert of Thai/Dutch group Apichat Pakwan + afterparty.
Apichat Pakwan is a group of musicians from Thailand & The Netherlands. They make what they call Esantronics, a hybrid mix of molam (folk music of the ethnic Lao, of whom the largest population is living in Esan, another name for Northeast-Thailand), dub, hiphop & electro.

The Thai musicians of the group are known as the most talented molam musicians of the new generation: Pongsapon Upani (1991) & Artit Krajangsree (1989). At the same time, they are well-respected innovators of the genre who mix new technologies with the original acoustic instruments of Lao folk music. Furthermore, Pongsapon is the regular kaen-player (mouthorgan that is the main instrument in molam) of legendary artists Chaweewan Dumnern & Angkanang Khunchai, and a gifted molam-singer himself. Named after last-mentioned molam-diva, Apichat Pakwan is completed by Thai percussion-player Angkanang Pimwankum (1992), with her 25 years the youngest member of the group.

Apichat Pakwan released their first vinyl single ‘Angkanang’ in 2016 on Animist Records, a record label founded by Olivier Schreuder. Their second 10” single ‘E-Ong Muan Sun’ (meaning ‘Delicious Nutritious Banana’) will be presented on this night in OCCII and will be for sale during the night!
