OCCII ON TOUR – Rebel Up & Filmhuis Cavia present:
FILM: ZERZURA + REBEL UP! DJ’s, SL’OCCii & Papelón Kifesh

In Tamashek with English subtitles; 84 minutes, 2017, Sahel Sounds.
Directed by Christopher Kirkley with Rhissa Koutata & Ahmoudou Madassane.

The first-ever ethnographic acid Western! In a genre-defying film, Zerzura follows a young man from a small village in Niger who leaves home in search of an enchanted oasis. His journey leads him into a surreal vision of the Sahara, crossing paths with djinn, bandits, gold seekers, and migrants. Zerzura is a modern folktale transposed onto an acid Western, equal parts Jodorowsky and Jean Rouch. Written and developed with a local Tuareg cast, Zerzura mixes ethnofiction with the genre picture, exploring themes of migration and exoticism through a collaborative approach.

10-14 June: Rebel Up @ Outernational Friend:Ship tour in Berlin & Hamburg

4 day tour in Germany: with 3 gigs in Berlin & Hamburg with Praed, Spiritzcualic Enhancement Center, Alexa D!Saster and more guests!

PRAED
Founded by Raed Yassin and Paed Conca in 2006, “Praed” is a band whose musical oeuvre can be described as a mixture of Arabic popular music, free jazz, and electronics.
In the same year, the band made its first public appearance in Al Maslakh festival in Switzerland, immediately followed by a concert at the Irtijal festival in Beirut. Since then, the band has frequented numerous international music festivals and toured intensively world-wide, spanning Japan, Europe and Canada. Through these endeavors, the band has created a large global network with other renowned musicians as musical collaborators.

The duo’s body of work mainly explores the terrain of Arabic popular music (“Shaabi”) and its interconnectedness with other psychedelic and hypnotic musical genres in the world, such as free jazz, space jazz, and psychedelic rock among others. Since its inception, Praed has shown a very keen interest in this music as a medium that reflects Egyptian society’s complicated fabric. Through the research it conducted, the band began to discover a strong cultural connection between “Shaabi” sounds and the “Mouled” music is played in religious trance ceremonies. The hypnotizing psychedelic effect that was embedded in this genre also triggered thoughts around its similarity to other popular music in the world that employ forms of sonic delirium, such as free jazz and psychedelic rock.

Spiritczualic Enhancement Center
Like an infinite circle whose center is everywhere and circumference is nowhere, the Spiritczualic Enhancement Center is an outer-national musical caravan, meandering in a world of free-beat. Their eclectic ingredients create an alchemical soup ranging from jazz-infused atavistic-futurism to frequency meditation. Featuring original artworks exploring the realms of syncretism, environments are brought to life via live-drawing projections and spaces transformed into temples of spontaneity. Creating soundscapes that glimpse into synchronistic magic, the bizarre participants of this ensemble remain agnostic: are they magicians, or merely tricksters? The band was founded on Christmas 2017, by secretly transforming the backroom of an abandoned Ottoman building adjacent to the Old City of Jerusalem into a temporary musical space.

Within the two weeks of its existence, the Center morphed into an ever-evolving and collaborative idea. Like a caravan which collects participants as it travels, a growing group of ‘outernational’ musicians are being magnetized. Carrying the Spiritczualic Enhancement Center within themselves, they gather on occasion for recording and performing. Free beat.
