hah, it’s Belgian national holiday time this thursday, where every Belgian feels very proud of being a Belgian, ahum. and what will we do? play some non-western global music, yeah!
This 4th Rebel Up! night in Brussels will take us to another dimension; that of the internet and streaming music clips from far away parts of the world. Youtube a go go.
The music video/dvd/clip is currently thé most versatile medium in Africa, Asia and South America to spread music and culture. The growing access to internet in these part of the world has made it possible that more and more of these music clips find their way on Youtube so that even people here in the West can look and listen to music and artists from all corners of the world. The Rebel Up! dj`s will play a personal Youtube selection of unknown lo-fi pop, digital folk psyche clips straight out of this neverending treasure cave, all projected on a big screen (inside & outside) and in full sound.
Loyal to the Rebel Up! philosophy, this night is a fundraiser for a local, independent NGO: the Brussels foundation Les Petits Samurais, that offers basic help to children from immigrants who are without papers and without assured accomodation. The organisation will give a short presentation during this evening.
