Sun 21 May > Rebel Up! @ Ancienne Belgique, Latin Day w/ Systema Solar (CO), La Chiva Gantiva (CO/Bxl), Orkesta Mendoza (MX) and La Negra Albina (ES/Bxl)

This sunday @ Ancienne Belgique > cumbia, mambo, rocknroll, countrytwang, champeta, etceterarara

SYSTEMA SOLAR is a crazy Colombian collective ‘from near the Caribbean’ and you might already know them from other nights & festivals? Apparently they will be bringing ‘berbenautika’ and that is then a cross between the champeta ‘pikos’ soundsystems and the ‘verbena’ parties!? Or, as they say: ‘Whatever. Party!’

LA CHIVA GANTIVA is also of Colombian origin but is known to dancing music-lovers as international, diverse, from Brussels, and even as ‘neighbour to AB’. In 2017, they finally release a 3rd album. We’re happy to repeat it too: with their extra tambore, alegre, llamador and maracones they are sure to get you back on the champeta, chirimia and mapalé!

ORKESTA MENDOZA gathers in Tucson, Arizona, and is linked to Calexico via their frontman Sergio Mendoza. Here is a phenomenally infectious mix of texmex, cumbia, mambo, merengue, ranchero, rock‘n’roll, country-twang, psychedelica & Perez Prado… The whole hot hog, wittily played with class, passion, and pleasure (and released on the brilliant Glitterbeat label!)

LA NEGRA ALBINA, our friend Paula Leon lead this group: as homebase Brussels – on the street or in parks if need be – but most definitely with Latin or Hispanic or South America roots, and what they present is quite simply extra-territorially enjoyable.

Sat 24 Oct > El Pulpo night @ La Tentation w/ Los Demonios de la Cumbia + DJ’s Gaetano Dub & Jo Selector

hola!

This saturday our international friends of El Pulpo Collective are organising a special night in La Tentation, helped by Rebel Up! though we’ll not be there this night, as we are in Budapest for WOMEX.

The evening starts early with a concert by Galician folk musicians Narf & Uxia.

El Pulpo night will then kick off with special guests Los Demonios de la Cumbia!!!

This is the band project by DJ Kumbia Beats aka Marco Bustamente, resident of Antwerp but originally from Beni, Bolivia. This insatiable traveller, multi-instrumentalist and producer has formed a strong reputation over the last decade or so in the indigenous folk & electronic music scene of Bolivia. Los Demonios de la Cumbia is the result of a mix between 2 worlds, as they blend alternative electronic styles like moombathon with Colombian cumbia and Bolivian folk. Through this mix of traditional instruments and electronic effects one will hear the different Latin American nationalities represented in this group; Cuba, Bolivia, Chili, Paraguay and beyond. Fiesta pura with these demons!

Afterwards the DJ’s of Groovalizacion Radio /El Pulpo will provide all the tropical tunes you need to dance the whole night!

Groovalizacion Radio is a web radio station that started in 2008 and consists of journalists and cultural activists presenting shows with music from allover the globe, from traditional to urban sounds.
Gaetano Dub from Liege, who brings the wildest latin & roots tunes and Venezuelan DJ Jo Selector from Bruxelles will give you all the latin & african flavours mixed up for a heavy session of dancing.

sebcat rebel up
DJ SEBCAT (Rebel Up! Bxl)

On his own tonight as LeBlanc is away on business… Bonnefooi says > This guy is one of Brussels’ most underestimated Global Groove Dj’s, with a musical network from Rajasthan to New Yorkistan and a musical selection that goes even farther and deeper into tropicalism and obscure global dance music. Sebcat is also a fulltime musical nexus, the way he blends his global grooves together in a party he also re-arranges, feeds and stimulates musical culture. Whatever you will get from him, in sound or food, it will be filled with specials spices and hotness. Caliente!
