Created in August 2016, the Clube do Choro de Bruxelas plays the Brazilian instrumental music, o Choro! This music was born in Rio in the 19th century, result of the encounter between the music of European dances (polca, mazurka, quadrille, waltz …) and African rhythms imported by slaves (lundu, maxixe …). Still played and studied today in Brazil, and always more developed i, other countries, the Choro, as to its origins, is enriched with multiple influences (jazz, other popular music …).

They are not satanic, they just make God cry. They don’t play samba, they decompose samba. They are not a trio, they are a quintet. So definitely, they are Satanique Samba Trio! Imagine Tom Zé without vocals!! Or Captain Beefheart in a Brazilian mood!!!
SATANIC SAMBA TRIOwas founded in 2002 with the sole purpose of posing as an idiosyncratic force on Brazilian Music landscape (hence, the reference to the word “Satan”, a derivation of the Hebrew expression shaitan, which in turn can be translated as “the adversary” or “stray”). Two years later, the quintet – not actually a trio – released their debut EP, MISANTROPICALIA.
In 2007, the band unearthed the critically acclaimed LP SANGROU, which led its way into Concerts on Brazilian Soil that also featured names as big as Tom Zé and Naná Vasconcelos. After a 3 year-long recording hiatus, as they toured around Brazil (big country, you know the drill), BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #2 was released with undeniable success. The “putrefaction trilogy” had just started: BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #1 from 2011 (yep, one year AFTER #2) and BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #3 (2013) would eventually follow the conceptual path of decay. By the earlier months of 2014, the band put together a digital compilation called BADTRIPTYCH (Far Out Recordings – UK) intended to lump up the “catchier” songs from the aforemented trilogy. Still in the wake of a creative spike, the quintet (remember: not a trio) released a 7-inch (45 RPM) vinyl record called MÓ BAD on 2015. Now they might be hitting your shores.
If you ever wanted to know how traditional brazilian music would sound if it went absolutely bonkers, Satanique Samba Trio is the fastest and coolest way find it out. http://www.sataniquesambatrio.com.br/

‘Puxa’ means ‘pull’ in Portuguese (and not ‘push’ as would seem logical) and is used as a musical shout to pull your dance partner closer to you. Be ready to hear Puxa! night long!
Live concerts by Chalo Correia and Band from Angola via Lisboa, Tabanka from Cabo Verde via Rotterdam and the Celeste Mariposa dj’s from Lisboa.
Chalo Correiais Gonçalves António Correia, an Angolan musician and singer who grew up with Semba music in his blood. Chalo was born in Luanda, the capital of Angola, in 1968. During his boyhood he was fortunate to encounter musicians from revolutionary semba bands like Os Merengues, and Os Kiezos. He moved to Lisboa, Portugal in the beginning of the 90s and started to learn the classical guitar on autodidact and academic level with a strong will to make it by playing vintage Angolan music. His debut album ‘Kudihohola’ has just been released in June by Celeste/Mariposa Discos and is testimony to the development of his remarkable vision on Angolan music. Chalo Correia as a band retains the explosive, organic sounds of Semba and Rebita, but also remains in touch with the modern urban afro music scene in Lisbon. Semba is the swinging afro style from Angola, it comes from the word Masemba, which means ‘belly bumping’, a reference to some serious tight dancing. It’s the original base for styles like Brazilian Samba, Kizomba, Rebita, Kazukuta and it inspired the birth of urban Kuduro sound. Check his new video below for that sweet Semba sound.
Tabanka is a 7 piece Cabo Verdian band from Rotterdam, playing the fast swinging funaná music, thé dance sound of Cabo Verde. Their delirious funaná is ruled by the diatonic accordeon (gaita) and the ferrinho (metal stick) for some scraping rhythms and changing speeds. The group got its inspiration by generational musicians such as Bulimundo and Américo Brito but with their own modern interpretation and sound. Check it out! >
TheCeleste / Mariposadj duo run the famous Afro-Baile dance nights in Lisboa where they bring the Lusophone music culture together in sound. Their research is all about music from the former African Portuguese colonies; Angola, Kaapverdië, Guinee Bissau, Mozambique and Sao Tomé & Principé, digging up old vinyls on markets and visiting studio’s in Lisboa. They just started their own label Celeste Mariposa Disco’s on which they released Chalo Correia and for sure more Luso African releases will follow! Want to see how special they make it happen on their night? Check this video >

Ok, call it winter denial, but we won’t be shivering in our badly insulated homes. Dance with us n this friday the 13th to feverish cumbia, funk carioca, juke, afrotronics & other hot tropical global bass at this Pantropical party!
▨ DJ PINCHADO (argentina)
One of our favorite DJ’s from below the equator! Pinchado is a specialist excavator of the finest cumbia and other tropical gems from the vaults of half-molten record jungles across Latin America. He edits these into fun lo-fi mixes, either slowed down (rebajadas) or lovingly left intact to be spinned in clubs around the globe. Pinchado is closely tied to Holland’s own Dick El Demasiado, who released on Pinchado’s own Silbando Discos (next to the flamboyant Peruvian singer and hairdresser La Tigresa del Oriente). https://soundcloud.com/djpinchado http://www.silbandodiscos.com.ar/
▨ DJ LEBLANC (bruxelles | Rebel Up!, nightshop)
This man from is beyond a shadow of doubt one of the most pleasantly obsessed and knowledgeable purveyors of Non-western, tropical music for the Benelux. Together with Sebcat he’s the co-curator for many great tropical events in Bruxelles (Salle Rogier, Bonnefooi, Recyclart, etc.), and co-hosts the Nightshop radioshow for Radio Campus. Despite the sheer dizzying number of subgenre styles Leblanc uses for his unique DJ mixes, they’re always super focused, tight and highly dancable. Leblanc’s set will include digital cumbia, global bass & afrotronics. http://www.mixcloud.com/TSC/
▨ DØG (brazil)
DØG exists in multiple spaces simultaneously, raised in global suburbs, based in digital realms, sometimes visual other times musical. DØG divides his time between geeking out with A/V installations (as ‘ehCaetano’), and über-dancable DJ sessions as one of DØG’s multiple incarnations. This night he’ll serve up a high-octane mix of funk carioca, ghetto house, afro, and juke, with a pinch of tecnomelody and lambada. Heavy beats from the west suburbs of the planet. http://dogdogdogdogdog.org/
