Double Bxl wednesday 20 Nov: Rebel Up SebCat @ Autumn Falls festival: Mdou Moctar, Atelier210 + Kaito Winse @ Bonnefooi, Bxl

This wednesday is a double African concert night at Atelier210 and Bonnefooi.

In Atelier210 tamashek rocker Mdou Moctar from Agadez, Niger, will play as part of Autumn Falls festival.
warmup dj set & afterparty Rebel Up SebCat& Funky Bompa.

Mdou Moctar immediately stands out as one of the most innovative artists in contemporary Saharan music. His unconventional interpretations of Tuareg guitar have pushed him to the forefront of a crowded scene. Back home in Agadez, he’s celebrated for his original compositions and verbose poetry, an original creator in a genre defined by cover bands. In the exterior, where Saharan rock has become one of the continents biggest musical exports, he’s earned a name for himself with his guitar moves. Mdou shreds with a relentless and frenetic energy that utterly sets him apart. His latest album ‘Ilana The Creator’ is out on Sahel Sounds, listen here >

ticket 14€ presale, 17€ at door

and for those of you in the city centre and in the mood for some griot music:
Kaito Winse from Burkina Faso will play a FREE concert in Bonnefooi.

His concert is made from 9 songs and 9 shorts stories explaining the message of songs or instrument’s origins, depending on the mood. Chatting with audiences, Kaito Winse takes them to Lankoue, his village of Sourou from Burkina Faso. His songs reveal Samo land and griot traditions from Burkina Faso through ancestors praise, edifying traditional stories (tales). So many topics sung with a powerful and natural voice, which impose listening and silence before convincing by a melodious, bewitching and catchy texture via traditional instruments such as the mouth bow, Fula flutes, calabash and more. In 2020 his solo album will be released on Rebel Up Records. See a short video here.

showtime: 22:00, FREE IN!

Sunday 27.10: rebel Up SebCat warmup for Tinariwen, Het Depot, Leuven

This sunday 27 october,
Rebel Up SebCat dj warmup & afterparty support in Tamashek / Sahara and Sahel selections at the concert of iconic desert rock band Tinariwen in Het Depot, Leuven.

Tinariwen is a group of Malian Tamashek musicians, who were formed in the early 1980s in a Libyan refugee camp. Their hypnotic desert blues is just as unpleasant as it is enchanting. Expelled from their nomadic existence, they sing about political awareness, oppression and freedom.

In 2002 Tinariwen put the African desert rock on the (world) map with the album ‘The Radio Tisdas Sessions’. Since then, members of Tinariwen have released eight more albums, played at festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella and Roskilde, and have won multiple awards, including a Grammy for Best World Music Album.
