Arumbo (ES/BE)
Brussels and Barcelona are bursting with music. For this band the perfect base to grow their fusion between rumba and worldgroove into something beautiful, something danceable and at the same time something fragile. Text and music straight from the heart and irresistible for your limbs. What at first sight seems soft and fragile, turns out to be a true popular party. Arumbo serves southern sounds and melodies where nobody can stand still.

Shaman Festival (BE)
It brings more than just music. It is a belief, a lifestyle in which freedom, celebration and mysticism are central. They themselves describe their music as kermispunk or turbofestiv, even though this is actually in short supply. Their mix of ska, reggae, cumbia, gipsy beats, Eastern rhythms, South-American, mariachi music and polka-punk, supplemented by a number of graceful belly dancers, leaves nobody unmoved. All compositions are performed by a horn section, cajon and percussion, Rumba guitars, electric guitar riffs and a lot of positive energy. Shaman Festival was founded in 2006 and has played more than 150 performances ever since. Shaman festival will present their latest EP “Open” at Rumba Town.

Sat. 29 June > Tropical Boobs Mini Boom party #2 w/ Maga Bo (BR) & MC Teba (SA) @ Bouillon Kube, Bxl (St Gilles)

hiya folks!

affiche-miniboom_web

Couleur Café might be on this weekend in Brussels, but it’s a not so interesting edition and already finishing around midnight. So it’s time for some rougher world colours in a global dancehall and bass style for a real tropical party till the early morning light! Hosted by the all-female Tropical Boobs crew from Brussels, known from their wild global bass nights, in collaboration with Rebel Up! and Silver Canary. Expect everything from roots dancehall to cumbia, afro styles, folkloric beats, baile funk, trap and bass by these artists & crews >

Maga Bo (BR) & MC Teba (SA); ethnic bass & global dancehall
We’re proud to announce 2 special international guests on our night. Globetrotting producer Maga Bo hails from Rio de Janeiro and is one of the godfathers of the ‘global bass’ sound before the name had even been invented, having worked with artists from all around Africa and Latin America. His recent 2012 album *Quilombo do Future* features a modern Brazilian sound where he merged regional Afro folkloric styles from the Nordeste together with modern electronic dancehall beats, a true futuristic melting pot for the global dancefloor! MC Teba from Cape Town, South Africa, will perform duties on the mic during Maga Bo’s live set. Yep, be warned; it’s gonna be hot, steamy and wild.

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! dj´s > tropical bounce & cumbia bass
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 mash of folk, pop and contemporary electronic dance music.
