〰🔅〰 Nuri 〰🔅〰
Nuri is an established name on the Tunisian underground scene, where, as drummer, he has been a part of numerous alternative music projects.

〰🔅〰 Rebel Up SebCat 〰🔅〰
In the Brussels global scene, Rebel Up has become a household name through their party nights of contemporary *world* music and electronic ethnic sounds in Recyclart, Bonnefooi, BSB, La Tentation, Les Ateliers Claus and many other places. SebCat is a fulltime musical nexus: he hosts the Nightshop radio show on Radio Campus Bxl, curator of countless Bxl parties & nights and he runs a DIY vinyl distro with the better global sounds. Soon he will kickstart the Rebel Up label (with releases from Portugal, Angola, Cabo Verde, Ghana, Iraq, Mexico and Peru coming up!). Expect a wild set of the freshest African, Latino & global sounds.

〰🔅〰 Le Grand Méchant Loop 〰🔅〰
“I prefer to make little pigs dance rather than eat them!”
Philippe Nullens aka Le Grand Méchant Loop is world beats DJ and percussionist. He will take us on a surprising journey, spiced up with live percussions, where the genuine sounds of kologo, zurna, ferrinho and gwoka blend to create the kind of groove that can only be explained on a dancefloor!

Programme + lineup >

Canela ‘n Drama (ES/CT, Barcelona)

Carried by Alexis’ passionate guitar playing
www.canelandrama.com

Arumbo (ES/BE)
Brussels and Barcelona are bursting with music. For this band the perfect base to grow their fusion between rumba and worldgroove into something beautiful, something danceable and at the same time something fragile. Text and music straight from the heart and irresistible for your limbs. What at first sight seems soft and fragile, turns out to be a true popular party. Arumbo serves southern sounds and melodies where nobody can stand still.

Shaman Festival (BE)
It brings more than just music. It is a belief, a lifestyle in which freedom, celebration and mysticism are central. They themselves describe their music as kermispunk or turbofestiv, even though this is actually in short supply. Their mix of ska, reggae, cumbia, gipsy beats, Eastern rhythms, South-American, mariachi music and polka-punk, supplemented by a number of graceful belly dancers, leaves nobody unmoved. All compositions are performed by a horn section, cajon and percussion, Rumba guitars, electric guitar riffs and a lot of positive energy. Shaman Festival was founded in 2006 and has played more than 150 performances ever since. Shaman festival will present their latest EP “Open” at Rumba Town.
