Guacamayo Tropical (CO / Madrid)
The Colombian duo Guacamayo have been taking all the afrolatin flavour in their suitcase, spreading the sweaty love in their wild Guacamayo Tropical parties in Madrid and their Festival Guacamayo in the mountains near Madrid. Their sessions are characterized by the integration of organic musical instruments such as Colombian gaita, tamboras and djembe, and even typical and native dances switched up with digital beats. Also, they explore new sounds created from traditional roots with a slightly digital edge. Hearty, lively rhythms and flood the crowd with a colorful wave of love, joy and Cumbia! Inspired by earthly ancestral trips, they show us a path, an idea and a project aimed at challenging the senses on all fronts, shooting out sounds explosively charged with good vibes, light and hope.

His musical universe is broader then broadway and he’s also active as a sound designer for theater and film. In his more informal playing moments he’s also known as Carrot or El sñr Naranja.

DJ SEBCAT (Rebel Up! Bxl)

On his own tonight as LeBlanc is away on business… Bonnefooi says > This guy is one of Brussels’ most underestimated Global Groove Dj’s, with a musical network from Rajasthan to New Yorkistan and a musical selection that goes even farther and deeper into tropicalism and obscure global dance music. Sebcat is also a fulltime musical nexus, the way he blends his global grooves together in a party he also re-arranges, feeds and stimulates musical culture. Whatever you will get from him, in sound or food, it will be filled with specials spices and hotness. Caliente!

Sat. 8 June: Oyé! *CUMBIA DANCEHALL Fiesta* @ Bouillon Kube, Bxl

Rebel Up! & Silver Canary crews present:
Oyé! *CUMBIA DANCEHALL Fiesta* @ Bouillon Kube
a night of cumbia & dancehall flowing together in one strong Afrolatino sound, connecting the Caribbean isles to the Latin continent without borders.

BouillonKube_OYE_210x294-poster_v3

The Bouillon Kube is an old Galician restaurant which in olden days was also used as a resting place by pilgrims who travelled the Camino de Santiago. Now it has been turned into a global cultural spot for the St Gilles neighbourbood, where the focus is put on southern music, arts, poetry and film. They operate as a non-profit place where prices are fair, with drinks are much cheaper than elsewhere in town and so we make it a cheap night for all!

Silver Canary crew + MC´s > straight up roots
The Silver Canary is a Brussel based Soundsystem consisting of a international crew of dj´s and singers who organise roots nights in Matongé and other venues allover the city. The Canary brings you a deadly cocktail of underground Caribbean-Jamaican music to quench you thirst to dance. Everything from rocksteady up to raggamuffin!

Rebel Up! crew > cumbia, bass & tropical bounce
Since 2010, the Rebel Up! crew organises not-for-profit Soundclash parties in Brussels as fundraisers for small NGO´s. These rebels dive into many different local music styles from all around the world, whether it be ethnic, urban or a fusion of folk, pop and contemporary electronic dance music. On this night the sound will be all things uptempo Caribbean & streetstyle latino bass.

Chico Parany (AR) > cumbia & latino bass
our international guest Chico Parany from Córdoba, Argentina is a dj, selektor, remixer and investigator of folkloric rhythms and alternative, rebel and mestiza music from around the world.
