❂❁❂ Q-RICHI (Eck Echo Berlin / Peru) ❂❁❂
Since 2007 in Berlin where he discovered his passion for music from his distant home country Peru. With his collective Eck Echo Berlin he set up the foundation of an eclectic scene of avant-garde Latin-American rhythms and party nights. He has played with artists such as Dengue Dengue Dengue (Peru), NAAFI (Mexico) and Los Pirañas (Colombia). He also works for NATIVE INSTRUMENTS, where last year he made a documentary in Peru with Dengue Dengue Dengue and Los Wemblers about the quest of amazonian cumbia. As a DJ, Q-RICHI makes us discover the roots of contemporary dance music exclusively in vinyl format. A journey to rich traditions through styles such as psychedelic cumbia, chicha, mapalé and champeta. Sounds of the past for today’s dancefloor!

Thu + Fri + Sat > Arte Chicha de Ruta Mare, Peru @ Recyclart, Bxl + Pakebo, Liege

hola todas!
DOSSIER BELGICAthis week, 3 special Peruvian events in Brussels & Liege
For the first time in Belgium > street art collective Ruta Mare will showcase their art between 17 and 20 november!

Yefferson and Kelly form Ruta Mare, a duo that embodies an exemplary renewal of the Peruvian Chicha culture. Created in 2012, around their common passion for the popular culture of the streets of Lima, Ruta Mare develops artistic works that implement the reminiscences of a collective Peruvian imagination. By creating gigantic mural frescos or serigraphs, they readily mix popular imagery and traditional motifs in favour of a resolutely urban and committed aesthetic.

Yefferson and Kelly are particularly aware of the graphic identity they convey and claim without any complexity their belonging to the Chicha culture, notably through a fabulous typographic work. Ruta Mare brings graphic design in urban space in their own original way and always taking the art of Chicha back to its roots: art of the people for the people.

On Thrusday 17 nov in Brussels @ Recyclart with an expo + projection & talk at the Licky My Typo night. Make sure you reserve or come on time, as it will sell out!

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.
