Thu 23 Nov: Turkish Pyschedelic Groove night with Derya Yildirim & Grup Şimşek concert, afterparty with Rebel Up, Radio Martiko & Front Chaud

A very special night of Bonnefooi Invites, in collaboration with Rebel Up, with some very special guests
Derya Yildirim & Grup Şimşek (TR/DE/FR/IT/GB)

Young singer/multi-instrumentist Derya Yıldırım teams up with fantastic drummer Greta Eacott (G-Bop Orchestra / One-Take records) and 3 quarters of Catapulte Records’ Orchestre du Montplaisant (Antonin Voyant, Graham Mushnik, Andrea Piro). With members originating from Turkey, Germany, France, Italy and Great Britain, Grup Şimşek (pronounce « Shimshek ») encapsulates the Outernational generation.

Upon hearing Turkey’s Derya Yildirim, it only takes a few seconds until your soul willingly allows itself to be bowled over. This singer/multi-instrumentalist namely possesses a unique voice that exudes both melancholy and longing. Musically, she is accompanied by Grup Şimşek that excels with its hypnotic Anatolian psych-pop. Turkish folk, grooves and psychedelica. Aside from own compositions, Derya Yildirim also interprets gems by Turkish artists like (protest)singer Selda Bağcan, rock pioneer Barış Manço, Moğollar and the Turkish poet Nazım Hikmet. After their amazing performance at the 10 Years of Rebel Up party in Recyclart last march and more recently at the Feeerieen festival by Ancienne Belgique in August, be sure to get in on time for a good spot to shake & cry with us.

Listen to her 4 song EP ‘Nem Kaldi’ , co-released by Les Disques Bongo Joe & Catapulte Records in early 2017, to capture her deeply melancholic voice and the eloquently groovy sounds by Grup Şimşek.

Thu 9 Nov > Rebel Up Soundclash w/ Luka Productions (Mali / Sahel Sounds) & dj Zé Karlo

This thursday, a last minute Rebel Up Soundclash @ OCCII with a very special guest from Mali > > >

LUKA PRUDUCTIONS (Mali / Sahel Sounds)
Luka Guindo, rapper, producer, and multi-instrumentalist and one of the most sought after producers of contemporary Malian Hip Hop. Working from a small bedroom sized studio alongside a busy street in the Malian capital city, Luka has built a reputation as one of the most prodigious beatmakers. Working with artists such as Supreme talent show, Ami Yerewolo, Iba One, van baxy and Sidiki Diabaté, Luka productions officiel is a household name in Bamako’s Hip Hop scene. New age music from West Africa. Lush and hypnotic dreamscapes combine traditional instrumentation with sweeping electronics, field recordings, and soothing affirmations. Bamako based composer Luka Productions delves into avant-griot, transforming ancient music into the 21st century. The songs are meditative and sage, as voices guide the listener through ways of living, from the village life to the modern world. Inspired from early electronic music, library records, and new age, this is easily one of the most left field recordings to ever come out of Mali.

RebelUp SebCat says; “amazing subtle album of afro-electronic moods, between the city & the bush. Modern Malian music from the young generation like you never heard…”
