Thu 18 Oct > Rebel Up & Babylon Trio @ La Bellevilloise, Paris (FR) w/ Akuphone label & Praed

Akuphone presents an evening dedicated to the new wave of contemporary Arabic music. Spearheading this music scene is the Lebanese band PRAED, who will play its contemporary cutting edge shaabi, with captivating psychedelic accents. For the first time in Paris, the young Iraqi/Brussels trio Babylon Trio will give a wild performance!

To complete the evening, Akuphone invites Brussels collective Rebel Up. Cheb Gero (Akuphone) and SebCat (Rebel Up) will share the decks in the first half of the evening for a set of various styles from choubi-choubi to dabke, electro shaabi, maghraganat, rai, reggada and beyond.

Praed (LB)
founded in 2006 by Raed Yassin and Paed Conca and is a group that explores popular Arabic music (or shaabi) and its interconnections with other psychedelic and hypnotic music genres, such as free jazz and psych-rock. Raed Yassin performs keyboards and vocals, Paed Conca, clarinet and electronic bass. The group performed during many festivals and toured Japan, Europe and Canada. Praed has developed an international network of famous musicians, raising musical collaboration to the umpteenth square. Their next album will be released on the Akuphone label next year.

Fri 12 Oct > Rebel Up @ Ifriqiyya Electrique concert, Magasin4 + party in Café Maison du Peuple, Bxl

his friday, double action in Brussels.

Starting in the Magasin 4 with the concert of Ifriqiyya Electrique and Osilasi with Rebel Up Nightshop dj’s as support.

IFRIQIYYA ELECTRIQUE
Adorcist rituals & Post-Industrial music
Demons, Possession & Trance. Djérid desert, Sahara, Tunisia

Adorcism. Your personal DEMON possesses your BEING, and this for ALWAYS.
IFRIQIYYA ELECTRIQUE is a project apart. More than a concert, it is the true adorcist ritual of Sidi Marzûq practiced by the Banga community. Music recomposed with electric guitars, traditional instruments and computers, a transcendental and post-industrial ceremony.

video

OSILASI
experimental Brussels folk

Duo made up of Léa Roger (Guili Guili Gulag / Félon) and Célia Jankowski (Vitas Guerulaïtis / Flies Rattle / collective H.A.K.). Influenced as much by traditional music as by experimental music, OSILASI creates a narration with extensible contours, playing on sound dynamics, rhythmic shifts and modulation in repetition. Their music oscillates between interiority and physicality, always in tension, always on the wire. “One can refer to a fine blend of post-velvet experimentation, spiritual free jazz, French folk prog and Malinese music, but that would equally distract one’s attention from their wild beauty and imagination.” (Kraak Festival)
