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 6 July @ de Vinger, Den Haag > Rebel Up! Soundclash party

rebel up 6 july 2013
Hi Up the Rebels,

Our selection has grown wilder and once again with all types of mashups between Soca, Soukous, Cumbia, global rough bass, the groove of old skool and new skool Afro-Funk, Desert blues, festive Chaabi, mad Indian drum n bass and a bit of spicy Balkan beat here and there.

As usual the enjoyment is also based on the fact that your feet won’t be moving for no reason, the benefits of the night will go this time to Women’s Initiative for Gender Justice, a NGO struggling for the changes of mentality and mainly for the governments leaving consciously open sexual crimes unpunished. If you won’t to know more about this organization, you can go to www.iccwomen.org or on their twitter account @4GenderJustice.

We hope to see you there to share some real fun times together.
Sound delicatessen await…
