Cassette Connection Belgium tour 11-12 may; Antwerp, Brussels & 13 may extra set in A´dam

Helloooow,

poster design by Ness Verbeiren

On Friday the 11th o´may, the super special Cassette Connection tour kicks off in Belgium (Antwerp & Brussels) and followed by Amsterdam on Sunday with a limited set by Rebel Up! through the magical Indian tape collection of Sebcat.

Cassette Connection is a pure cassette tour with 3 specialised cassette dj`s playing their collections of colourful lo-fi tapes of (un)popular, vintage and folkloric music from different regions of the world; lo-fi folkpop, ethnic jewels & disco sounds from AFRICA – MIDDLE EAST and the INDIAN SUBCONTINENT.

Awesome Tapes from Africa (US)
After a stint in Ghana researching the local hip-hop movement, Brian Shimkovitz, a trained ethnomusicologist, has accumulated hundreds of cassette tapes of rare african music from Zimbabwe to Ethiopia to Senegal. He has been sharing his bounty through his popular blog Awesome Tapes From Africa, which he takes on the road as a DJ. His dj sets bring old and new music styles of the African continent together in one pure sound that will make you swing till you drop. Awesome Tapes From Africa is now also a label; the first release is a classic 1982 recording by Mali’s legendary diva, Nâ Hawa Doumbia

DJ Cinnamoon (ES)
Since 2005, the DJ Cinnamoon project has been compiling the best popular music from the Middle East. For this special lo-fi meeting we will enjoy a dense audio-retrospective with original cassettes of Googoosh, Erkin Koray, Omar Souleyman, Haifa Wahbe and many other Turkish, Kurdish, Persian & Arabic extraordinary artists still unreleased for western audiences.
