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.

rebelup_22nov_poster_smallYo folks,

our next Rebel Up! Soundclash party has a Latin-American flavor, with special guests from Argentina & Chile! You know what that means! Cumbia, cumbiaton, reggaeton, merengue, dembow, tribal, global bass, andean folklore, narco electronics & twerk folk! In short; not to be missed 🙂

Chancha Via Circuito
One of the foremost exponents of Argentina’s digital cumbia scene, Pedro Canale aka Chancha Via Circuito has released 2 albums on Buenos Aires’ famed ZZK label and just released his 3rd album Amanasara on Brussels label Crammed Discs. Their blend of Argentinian folklore, Paraguayan harp and Andean mysticism, all processed through Pedro Canale’s own futuristic strain of electronic music, has garnered great reactions: the albums were hailed by Pitchfork and the New York Times, among others, and Chancha was enlisted for remix work by Gilles Peterson and Gotan Project. Expect a set of dubby cumbia and minimal electronic folk spheres straight from the Andes!

Pedrolito is his sidekick at Muevelo and runs a saboroso radio show for Groovalizacion radio. Expect a heavy suave mix of villera street cumbia, tropical bass and dancehall.
