24/25/26 March: Festa Afro Tuga #2 weekend in Antwerp & Brussels

Afro Tuga time again!  After our 1st super successful party in Brussels last June, it is time for Afro Tuga #2 and this time 2 nights in 2 cities: Antwerp & Brussels.
Amazing artwork for both made events by Bichel Editions.

Friday 24 March in Het Bos in Antwerp >
With 2 special guests from Lisboa, Portugal, for a night of true Afro Portuguese music styles from vintage styles to urban afro tech & beats >

Celeste Mariposa (Lisboa / PT) /
Wilson Vilares started out as techno dj but the powerful music of the African ex-Portuguese colonies lured him in and he became a true connoisseur of the Luso-African music diaspora from Angola & Cabo Verde, Guinee Bissau, Sao Tomé and further. Last year a label under the same name, releasing talented Luso-African artists living in Lisboa such as Chalo Correia, Julinho da Concertina (both in Recyclart last 2 years). Expect wild funana, funky coladeira, shaking semba, rebita and much much more!

DJ Noronha – BlackSea Não Maya crew- (Principe, Lisboa / PT)
Only 24 years old, DJ Noronha aka Fabio d’Alva Noronha is a young and talented producer / dj of the Lisbon southside Bairro da Jamaica area, across the river Tejo river. Part of the Blacksea Não Maya crew together with Dj Kolt, Dj Perigoso & Dj Joker who have released 2 LP’s already on Principe Discos. The Blacksea Não Maya sound is an urban blend of Afro Portuguese ghetto beats, spanking percussion and electronic tones, like slower funaná crossed with the rudiments of kuduro. Alien rumba for ballroom dance matinées. Puxa pa!

Rebel Up! SebCat (Bxl)
The only non-Portuguese dj on the bill as local support. Part of the Brussels global crew Rebel Up!, which needs no introduction for those who come to their underground global nights. Expect some hot warming up in Luso African spheres, from vintage sounds to modern beats.

Calacas DJ’s (Mechelen)
Driven by their love for the analog sound, DJ duo Calacas explores the world of tropical grooves as cadencelypso, cumbia, guaguanco, afro disco and more. Their ultra-danceable sets leave no dance floor unmoved! Immerse yourself in a heavy sweaty trip through the Creole univers.

This music was born in Rio in the 19th century, result of the encounter between the music of European dances (polca, mazurka, quadrille, waltz …) and African rhythms imported by slaves (lundu, maxixe …). Still played and studied today in Brazil, and always more developed i, other countries, the Choro, as to its origins, is enriched with multiple influences (jazz, other popular music …).
