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.
