Thanks to everyone who made the last Rebel Up! party such a big success, especially to Malorix for his wonderful broken world beats, and to Roberto, the humanoid in sheep’s clothes, for his tastefully eclectic selection of well-spiced tunes.
Our resident nomads Seb and Maarten have left for their music documentation project in India, and so the torch has been passed to the next band of rootless bricoleurs passing by. Some of the tunes collected by the India-wallahs will be audible on the next Rebel Up, which will take place on Saturday the 24th of November. To alleviate the pains of autumn rains, we will once again be weaving our multifarious web of sounds and imagery, the transcultural tapestry integrating elements from North Pole to Equator to South Pole … migratory sounds to be enjoyed under the warm and comfy OCCII roof.
As always, all profits will be donated to charity. We got a good amount of donations for Tamsarya project in Nepal last time, and this time we choose a project for the poor in South America with the association Casa Amazonia to help them open new classes for children in Guayaquil, Ecuador. (For more details you can check their website at www.casaamazonia.com.)

Rebel Up! Soundclash (#8)
Diasporic sounds from the global underground…..
