Les Filles d’Illighadad
Fatou Seidi Ghali, Alamnou Akrouni and Mariama Salah Aswan come from the region of Illighadad, in the heartland of the Niger bush. Rarely have we heard sounds that resonate with as much emotion as those of Les Filles d’Illighadad. Fatou Seidi Ghali directs the band on guitar and vocals with her measured and calm play. In a world dominated by the masculine gender, she is one of the only female guitarists of Tuareg music. Together with her cousins Alamnou and Mariame on vocals, they go right into the essence of the “ishumars” music, mixing it on stage with the tradition of “Tende”, recording their pieces in the large open studio of the desert. Its music is minimalist, poetic and feminine where the trance and ancestral rhythms of the “Tendes” come to support a throbbing and melodious blues. Love, religion, the difficulties of life, the joy of the community, the glorification of nature and the Tuareg culture are themes distilled from the grains of their songs.
DJ Diego Armando
Xavier Riembau aka Diego Armando is a DJ from Barcelona who plays an eclectic mix of groovy tunes from around the world for the last 20 years. A 24-h digger who knows his way around from Jamaica to Cuba to New Orleans music. His specialty is dance floor killers from Afro-American music, exotic tunes from Brazil to Africa, disco and acid house anthems. He has played in festivals like Sónar, Piknic Electronik, Faraday, Black Music Festival, and venues like Razzmatazz, Apolo, Marula, Lolita, Powder Room, La 2 de Nitsa in Barcelona and beyond. His name is a hommage to the best football player in the planet, aka Diego Armando aka the Hand of God. Mani, bass player from the Stone Roses and Primal Scream, gave him his moniker name after a big party in La Costa Brava.

REBEL UP! SEBCAT
Originator of the Rebel Up! DJ collective, their infamous parties are no secret to the Brussels global underground and beyond. Always bringing the freshest and bounciest global sounds, from ethnic electronic bass to digital folklore, it’s all there to hear and feel. Tune in to radio show Rebel Up Nightshop on Radio Campus Bxl & Radio Groovalizacion. Select global, play local!
From a techno kick to a melodic clarinet, Alizarina mixes different influences: Techno, Klezmer, Gypsy and Balkan beats… Fruit of travels and a strongly developed curiosity, his music will take you on a modern trip through his special Ethno-Techno Tzigane sound. Just a few months ago, he released his debut album ‘Melodic Blossoms’ on Global Hybrid, an album that sublimely bridges tradition with the modern.
TOHM (Fanfara Electronica)
One of the originators of Global Hybrid crew that host many amazingly wild parties in Brussels and part of the Fanfara Electronica. His playground is a free and liberated mix of the electronic universe and world music. Tohm brings deep tribal sounds, a spirit for the freedom of wild electronic celebrations, ethnic sounds to dancefloor with a kicking beat!
Birthday boy Rafael also joins us! His obsessive curiosity has him digging through everything from latin beats to oriental melodies, unearthing unique samples that he (re)mixes, twists and polishes with a watchmaker’s precision. Rafael’s music is demanding but light-hearted, intelligent but down to earth, and overcomes musical language barriers with its lack of stylistic limitations.

Phoenician Drive (Bxl)
At the crossroads of Mediterranean folk music and psychedelic rock, Phoenician Drive was formed in summer 2015 by percussionist Diego Moscoso grouping 6 musicians from very different backgrounds (flamenco, Balkan, psychedelic rock’n’roll, jazz, post -punk / new wave) for blending traditional designs with fuzz guitars and oriental rhythms. In the footsteps of Erkin Koray and Orient Express and under the influence of ‘kraut-rock German (Neu !, CAN, Faust etc.) and soundtracks 60’s music, Phoenician Drive Search hypnotic trance by relying on oriental grooves. Two demos were recorded in December 2015 and quickly attracted interest in Brussels (Ateliers Claus WIELS, Recyclart, Atelier 210) and elsewhere (Rockerill, Area B in Paris). An EP is being mixed into the hands of Débruit (label ICI).
The concert will start at 20h sharp by a prologue without electricity, enlightened by 400 artisanal candles.
