24/25/26 March: Festa Afro Tuga #2 weekend in Antwerp & Brussels

Afro Tuga time again!  After our 1st super successful party in Brussels last June, it is time for Afro Tuga #2 and this time 2 nights in 2 cities: Antwerp & Brussels.
Amazing artwork for both made events by Bichel Editions.

Friday 24 March in Het Bos in Antwerp >
With 2 special guests from Lisboa, Portugal, for a night of true Afro Portuguese music styles from vintage styles to urban afro tech & beats >

Celeste Mariposa (Lisboa / PT) /
Wilson Vilares started out as techno dj but the powerful music of the African ex-Portuguese colonies lured him in and he became a true connoisseur of the Luso-African music diaspora from Angola & Cabo Verde, Guinee Bissau, Sao Tomé and further. Last year a label under the same name, releasing talented Luso-African artists living in Lisboa such as Chalo Correia, Julinho da Concertina (both in Recyclart last 2 years). Expect wild funana, funky coladeira, shaking semba, rebita and much much more!

DJ Noronha – BlackSea Não Maya crew- (Principe, Lisboa / PT)
Only 24 years old, DJ Noronha aka Fabio d’Alva Noronha is a young and talented producer / dj of the Lisbon southside Bairro da Jamaica area, across the river Tejo river. Part of the Blacksea Não Maya crew together with Dj Kolt, Dj Perigoso & Dj Joker who have released 2 LP’s already on Principe Discos. The Blacksea Não Maya sound is an urban blend of Afro Portuguese ghetto beats, spanking percussion and electronic tones, like slower funaná crossed with the rudiments of kuduro. Alien rumba for ballroom dance matinées. Puxa pa!

Rebel Up! SebCat (Bxl)
The only non-Portuguese dj on the bill as local support. Part of the Brussels global crew Rebel Up!, which needs no introduction for those who come to their underground global nights. Expect some hot warming up in Luso African spheres, from vintage sounds to modern beats.

Calacas DJ’s (Mechelen)
Driven by their love for the analog sound, DJ duo Calacas explores the world of tropical grooves as cadencelypso, cumbia, guaguanco, afro disco and more. Their ultra-danceable sets leave no dance floor unmoved! Immerse yourself in a heavy sweaty trip through the Creole univers.

31 Oct > Phonecard Party @ Petit Chateau, Bxl + Mictland @ Arenberg theatre, Antwerp

10-31-phonecard-party-a413-lores

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 brighten up their residence in Brussels.

asielbrussel10
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.

Since it’s a party for the residents only, places for external folks are very limited to 15 people only.
here’s the fb event or check the Recyclart website how to make a reservation.

from 20 – 23h
27 bvd du Neuvième de Ligne / 9de Linielaan 27
