Womex 2014 Santiago de Compostela aftermath

 Last friday our nightly Rebel Up! dj showcase set at Womex went quite well, such fun we had 🙂

Before this in the afternoon, we had an amazing multi dj session at the Wapapura solar disco as part of the Global Club Music network that we are part of, with dj’s such as Kosta Kostov, Boris Viande, Sauvage FM, Darius Darek, Sound Culture, Esta Polyesta, Criolina, Dala Dala, Miriam Kokako music, Evviva Show and even a special guest performance of Carmen (Gato Preto!!) . The whole 2 hour set got recorded, check it out here! (Rebel Up! SebCat at 22 mins)


then our showcase in Sala Capitol. So nice to see all the true party folks staying n dancing until the very end of our rough world hopping set. Near the end we did a special improvisation with our Canadian friends Tamar (vocals) & Briga (on violin) who improvised on our balkan tallava beats.  We will soon upload the mix and some clips of our set. Here some pics >>
