Thu 6 July > Rebel Up! @ Pantropical presents: Los Mirlos, WORM, Rotterdam

Hola!
this thursday, concert of famous Peruvian chicha cumbia band Los Mirlos in Rotterdam!!!

Pantropical is extremely proud to present the legendary Los Mirlos during their first ever European tour! Widely known as the masterminds of Peruvian-Amazonian Cumbia, Los Mirlos have recorded over 500 songs during their career. If you haven’t been living under a rock, chances are you have heard at least one of them, one way or another. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see this fantastic 8-piece live band led by founder Jorge Rodríguez Grández.

LOS MIRLOS (PE) – starts 21h15 !
Named after a black bird in their native jungle, Los Mirlos are the uncrowned kings of tropical Peruvian Cumbia, or Cumbia Amazonica. The band came together in Lima during the oil boom of the 70s and created a uniquely new and powerful party music inspired by the Anglophone psychedelic rock and surf music of the time. Fast-forward some 40 years, and Los Mirlos have travelled and performed in almost every Latin American country, and are still considered essential for the culture of Amazonian Cumbia, not in the last place because of popular compilations such as “Roots of Chicha”, “Back To Peru”, and “Cumbia Beat Vol. 1”. Songs like ‘La Danza de Los Mirlos’, ‘Sonido Amazónico’, ‘Lamento en la Selva’, ‘Muchachita del Oriente’, and ‘Chinito en Onda’ are kept in the memory of many people worldwide, who all danced to them at one point of their life.

DJ support by Rebel Up! SebCat & DJ Pinchado (AR), everything Peruvian from huayno folklore, selva, cumbia, guaracha & chicha cumbia!
Visuals by Jonathan Castro (PE).

Next to playing shows they’re pushing the best music from all over the globe by organizing parties in RecycleArt & OCCII, where they invite artists from all over the world.

Ramses3000 b2b Ray Fields

You might know Ramses3000 as the dj of Cairo Liberation Front, who started playing solo to show the audience what the world has got the offer besides electro-cha3bi. For this Eurabia night he invited friend and fellow towny Ray Fields to join him for an exclusive b2b-set. Expect a pumpin’ mix with the finest electronics combined with world music and Middle-Eastern jams.

AFRIKABOOMNADA

These brothers from Eindhoven are the residents of Het Wild, their own club night where they invited artists like Flako, Kutmah & DJ Nigga-Fox. Next to organizing parties you could have seen them behind the decks at festivals like Mysteryland, BungalUp & Paaspop. After they played the last edition of Eurabia in EKKO, we know for sure; we had to ask them back.

This friday 17th,  Rebel Up! will be spinning at the big Antitapas *cherry night* party in The Egg (an old empty factory!) in Anderlecht, just behind the South/Midi station.

We’ll be playing in the main hall, which is a giant hangar which can fit *a lot* people and seriously expected to fill up, as the Antitapas parties always draw over 1000 people, crazy stuff! From midnight to 5 am we’ll be playing all sorts *ratatouille* global sounds from every warm and tropical corner of the world with circus acts and an orchestra inbetween.  In the other room there will be a cumbia band and balkan  and cumbia dj’s like our good friend Quilombo to make people jump up.

It surely promises to be a huge ass party! -to talk in donkey spheres-.
