Our Rebel Up! Sebcat will mix an underground set of electro-afro-latino sounds without borders, no vaccins, visas or passports needed, all between vintage roots and urban electronic spheres. Rebel Up! played a dj showcase at WOMEX 2014 in Santiago de Compostela.

Co-founder of international Radio Groovalizacion and based in Paris, nomad in sound specialised in tropical sounds of afro, caribbean, latin, arab and indian spheres alike with an urban heartbeat rhythm. This true groove-trotter has played on  nights with international artists such as Bomba Estereo, Seu Jorge, Balkan Beat Box, Salif Keita, Systema Solar, Dhoad Gypsies of Rajasthan, La Yegros and Chicha Libre and played a WOMEX dj showcase in 2013.

Between Brussels, Caracas and Kinshasa, he takes music from one continent to another, discovers musical gems everywhere and spreads these on local radio.  He has shared nights with atists such as Bonga, Dj Sargento et Neco Novellas and more…. A heavy cocktail of salsa brava, soukous, electro-caribe, cumbia ninja, raggamuffin beats and guaguancó cósmico is on our way!

Back from Caracas and now in Brussels. Bumayé: researcher; radio commentator and writer who climbs into the dancefloor boxing ring who will deliver some heavy hits of African Rumba, Caribbean Salsa brava, Cumbia, Chicha psychédélique and many other fine surprise attacks. All dance sounds between Quito,  Bogotá and passing by Madrid, prepare yourself for a musical K.O.
