LINE-UP

special guest:

Coco Maria (MX/Berlin)
Coco Maria is a colourful lady from the north of Mexico shaking down the Berlin tropical scene with her classy and funky record collection mainly from Colombia, Brazil, Peru and beyond. Her upbeat selection will at the very least put a smile on your face but watching Coco Maria enjoy herself on the decks, completes the experience and makes non-believers dance till the sun sets in the new world.

Rebel Up SebCat (Bxl)
Rebel Up is a household name in Brussels through their party nights of contemporary *world* music and electronic ethnic sounds in many venues. Expect a wild set of the freshest African, Latino & global sounds.

Le Grand Méchant Loop (Bxl)
Philippe Nullens aka Le Grand Méchant Loop is a DJ and percussionist based in Brussels. He’s passionate about world music and has built over the years a large collection of songs from almost everywhere. He will take us on a surprising journey, spiced up with live percussions, where West-African griots meet Colombian gaiteros or Pakistani nomads… So let’s get ready for a musical patchwork full of groove that will move our little pigs’ pawls, because as he says, “I prefer to make pigs dance rather than eat them!”
