SPECIAL GUEST
Oscilador Bass (Mexico)
The favorite ancestral robot of housewives and washing machines was assembled over 15 thousand light years ago with parts of ancestral robots and spatial glass pieces; this supreme being is the miracle of his extinct civilization. His planet called “Cumbiatron”, a planet full of technology and beings focused on creating a fusion of electronic components and feelings. Oscilador Bass is a robot with a heart. His mission and objective is to collect music and culture of all galaxies. After long traveling to find a destination, he discovered a planet called “Earth”, after investigating he finds out it is a civilization full of feelings and love, therefore he decides to establish his home there. Oscillador Bass created a new sound called Latin Bass Sound mixing güiros, cencerros and tumbas with the best spatial sound getting his sole objective: to feel and to transmit happiness to all humanity, fulfilling the desire of their ancestors”. He started the free netlabel Latin bass mexico records, counting 8 mega compilations of latin bass sounds and has also released 4 EP’s of his own productions.

in the evening/ night, it’s the Sublime Frequencies 15 years tour!
The Rebel Up DJ’s will be doing dj support during the evening & afterparty together with Hisham Mayet of Sublime Frequencies.

Since 15 years, American label SUBLIME FREQUENCIES enriches the music world as a specialist in non-western music. Besides music, they also publish books, documentaries and films. Tonight they present two live artists signed on their label: Senyawa (Indonesia) and Baba Commandant (Burkina Faso), also joined by their friends Praed (Lebanon). DJ support comes from the label owner Hisham Mayet of Sublime Frequencies and the Rebel Up dj’s.

Senwaya
this duo from Yogyakarta is headed by Rully Shabara and Wukir Suryardi. Indonesian traditional music forms the basis, but the duo uses playing techniques from experimental genres to create a completely unique sound. Hardcore metal, improvisation and traditional ritual music played with an intensity as if punk. Singer Shabare uses vocal traditions of the island in his singing but can also heavy metal grunting. Suryardi plays self-built instruments with names like ‘Gary’, ‘Bambu Wukir’ and ‘Aker Mahoni’. During performances, the duo uses homemade electronics to edit the sound of the vocals and instruments live. Their new album ‘Sujud’ has just been released.

Baba Commandant & The Mandingo Band
from Burkina Faso and was born as Mamadou Sanou and earned his spurs as a dancer and then as a singer and musician with groups like Dounia and the accompaniment band of Burkina Faso’s greatest star: Victor Démé. Baba Commandant plays the ‘ngoni’, the traditional instrument of the Donse tribe, traditional hunters in the region of Burkina Faso and Mali. He is aided by his Mandingo band of veteran musicians of the mandinko tradition, enfused with rock. The main influences of the group are Nigerian greats Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade but also Moussa Doumbia, the Malinese response to James Brown. Check their debut album ‘Juguya’ and their afro rocker album ‘Siri Ba Kele’ has which just been released

Praed (Lebanon)
“The band’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 that 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.”
