fri 23 nov Rebel Up! dj’s @ Recyclart, Brussels with uKanDanZ (ET/FR) + Zea (NL)

Time for another Rebel Up! session at Recyclart!
We are co-hosting this special African/Ethiopian night with the good Recyclart folks as part of a concert night with Ukandanz and Zea for whom we are playing support with eastern African and other modern African tunes.

Zea (Arnold de Boer, The Ex) will kick off the night with some of his eclectic African inspired punkrock songs with electronic effects and samples between Delta blues, Ghanese riffs, Ethiopian electrofolk and gabba beats.

uKanDanZ is a French-Ethiopian outfit that plays some serious electrified folky punkjazz with Asnake Guebreyes on vocals (from the late Mohammed Jimmy Mohammed band). Pure energy spiritualised with emotional drives to make the crowd go wild and shiver in Ethiopian dance stylee. Listen to their new album on Deezer and check out the video >

As always with Rebel Up! hosted nights, a part of the proceedings will go to a NGO project, in this case the Ethiopia-project of The Ex/Zea in the capital Addis Abeba where they support a music school for blind and handicapped children and other programmes. You can also make a donation at the bar if you like.

Keep in mind; it’s a concert night and not a late dance night, so do come early enough. doors 21:00, just 5€ in, full info on Recyclart site.
