Sat 11 Nov > triple Rebel Up action in Brussels @ Kiosk Radio opening, Giraffes & Penguins #3 party + Bal des Migrants fundraiser

Hello Bxl

a busy saturday coming up on 11/11 with 3 events where Rebel Up will spin global tunes.
Starting at Kiosk Radio opening party in the afternoon.
as of Saturday 11 November a new internet radio will be airing in Brussels, video-streaming live from a wooden kiosk @ Parc Royal, every afternoon, every day of the week! To celebrate this, an opening party from 12 til 22h.

Kiosk Radio will be first and foremost a community of music lovers. Kiosk will be collaborating with some of the finest Brussels & Belgian-based DJs, labels and collectives, also hosting some (really special!) international guests from time to time. Tune in and join our community!  Each month, Rebel Up will host a 2 hour session with special guests and always good global tunes.

Rebel Up SebCat will spin from 15-16h

All info, see FB event / website

Then from 23h onwards, our 3rd Giraffes & Penguins party in alternative space Collectif Au Quai, with special guest duo Pal/Secam from Amsterdam!

Pål/Secam is an Amsterdam based Dutch/French DJ duo, who spread the intercontinental PAN-AMAFROPEANS sound on the local dance floors. The two joined forces in 2011 after dj-ing solo for several years. Their sets are infused by the elements of surprise and excitement, in terms of mixing in another genre, from New York deep disco to early 80’s hip hop, Congolese rumba, oldschool electro, Cape Verdean Funaná or Kenyan Benga music.. There is no end. This is the PAN-AMAFROPEAN sound, as they like to call it. Pål/Secam developed their own style based on groove, international groove. With a mission to break musical boundaries by creating a diverse colourful pattern that tickles ears and feet.

Otim Alpha & Leo Palayeng (UG) *live*
Hailing from the sweltering city of Gulu in Northern Uganda, both Alpha—an ex bare-knuckle boxer and master harp player—and Palayeng are considered pioneers of what’s become a veritable hyper-local electronic scene among the Acholi community. In 2001, Otim Alpha together with his early producer Leo Palayeng began taking traditional Acholi ‘Larakaraka’ wedding songs and reinterpreting them with music software on computers.

Due to the influence of missionaries who thought of them as non-Christian, Acholi traditions were for many years pushed to the periphery, and only preserved and passed down thanks to traditional musicians like Alpha. “When I recorded his traditional folk songs and added my electronic elements, local people loved the sound and it spread like wildfire,” says Palayeng. In his studio, the producer combined the adungu, nanga (both harps), fiddle and flute with synths and electronic drum-kit beats to create sounds that are equally nostalgic and forward-looking. The results are a fast paced poly-rhythmic Acholitronix ready for dance floor madness.

Most of the songs on the Gulu City Anthems are electronic re-interpretations of Larakaraka folk songs that are traditionally performed at weddings. The lyrics were different for each occasion, and would weave the long histories of the clans being united in marriage. “But people were not always able to afford the whole troop of musicians and dancers, so we started recreating the sounds with computers and singing the lyrics over the top—like karaoke,” Palayeng explains.

Released on the Nyege Nyege Tapes label, a Kampala based label exploring, producing and releasing outsider music from around the region and beyond.

808 Bantou (RDC/Bxl) *live*
Eric Mbuyamba aka Dr Kwest provides you with the best medicine. The doctor is influenced by Sun Ra and many others. He started sampling in 2006, has released several Beat Tapes and remixes and also hosts a radio show called Quest For The Beat on Radio Panik. 808Bantou is his project based on traditional and also contemporary Congolese music fused with 808 drums, a lot of percussion and Brussels footwork beats.
