finally it’s there after several attempts: our Congolese Rumba Special night on Saturday 24 august.
A whole night filled with marvelous vintage rumba & soukous sounds from Congo!
We’ll have 2 bands playing live on stage to fully lose yourself in this addictive rumba rock sound. Here the roll down > > >
Yan Koy & Kolor Rumba (CO/BE) (on poster)
This Congolese band from Brussels will play vintage Congolese rumba soukous songs from the 60’s to 80’s, led by vocalist Yan Koy along with master members such as Petit Poisson, Pappy Muntu, Alonzo Baba and several others who played in famous Congolese bands such as Franco’s OK Jazz, Zaiko Langa Langa and Ndombe. In a 2 hour live set they will play classic rumba songs and take you into the Congolese underbelly of tropical rock with psychedelic guitar solo’s, hypnotising percussion and polyphonic vocals. Not to be missed!
Orch. TP Jean Mikili (BE)
Belgian trio from Brussels that specialises in Congolese rumba with fresh indierock while keeping it real for all to swing and shuffle along to. It’s gonna be *Tout Puissant* for sure as perfect warm-up to Color Rumba!
dj’s Rebel Up! & friends
swinging African & latino sounds before & after the bands.
Profits on the night will go to Women’s Initiative for Gender Justice, a NGO fighting for the change of mentality for governments that consciously leave open sexual crimes unpunished. For more info about this organization, go to www.iccwomen.org or their twitter account @4GenderJustice.
