Thu 2 Feb @ Yallah Bye!, VK, Molenbeek Bxl

This Thursday evening, concert + dj support by Rebel Up! @ VK.

Tunisian singer-songwriter Jawhar, known for his critically acclaimed album Qibla Wa Qobla, surprises us with yet an entirely new project: hypnotic, psychedelic and avant-garde electro-chaâbi music with a twist. Yallah Bye! is a rather unlikely musical encounter between an international icon of Rom culture, Mónika « Mitsou » Miczura (Ando Drom, Bratsch, Fanfare Ciocarlia) and the oriental folk/pop musician Jawhar. Based largely on new songs that Jawhar created for Yallah Bye! as well as pieces of Mitsou’s repertoire, this new creation is so much more than a clash of cultures.
Line Up:
Jawhar Basti: banjo vocals // Mitsou: vocals // Louis Evrard: Programming // David Picard: Keys // Yannick Dupont: Bass // Sep François: Percussions

Fri 25 Nov @ STUK w/ Islam Chipsy (EG), Leuven

chipsSalam!

Friday 25th @ STUK, Leuven
w/ Egyptian electro-chaabi act Islam Chipsy & EEK.

Islam Chipsy and his band EEK are a three-way force of nature from Cairo, Egypt described by those who’ve been caught in the eye of their storm as one of the most exciting live propositions on the planet. At the core of the group lies electro chaabi keyboard pioneer Islam Chipsy, whose joyous, freewheeling sonic blitz warps the standard oriental scale system into otherworldly shapes, as flanked by Mohamed Karam and Mahmoud Refat raining down a percussive maelstrom behind dual drum kits.

21:00 doors / Rebel Up dj-set
22:00 Islam Chipsy & EEK
23:00 Rebel Up! dj-set
