Sat 30 March > Jam’in Rebel Penguins global Bxl night w/ Kel Assouf (Bxl tuareg rock) & Ibaaku (SN) @ La Bodega

a global Brussels party night in 2 rooms with local & international live bands, live acts and deejays in La Bodega!

Live acts >

KEL ASSOUFTamashek rock, BXL
Out of nostalgia and the loneliness of the desert, Brussels based band Kel Assouf builds music around the Touareg Tamashek culture and the fight against discrimination. Key figure Aboubacar ‘Anana’ Harouna, a fledged tamasheq from Niger, speaks with his guitar, and uses it as a means to claim his rights without bloodshed. With one foot in the desert and the other in the urban jungle, Anana writes about events from the Sahara to here, about life in exile and about freedom, peace and respect for all peoples in the world. After their first album ‘Tin Hinane’ (in 2010) and second album ‘Tikounen’ (2016), Kel Assouf evolved into a new sound on their new album ‘Black Tenere’, released earlier this month on Glitterbeat Records. Tunisian producer Sofyann Ben Youssef immersed the band in a surprisingly contemporary production and sound, which expresses a cry of impotence against violence, injustice and pollution in the world. The result? Desert rock with stirring drums, mesmerizing guitar riffs, psychedelic melodies and Tamasheg vocals. African rhythms played by rock musicians, bring Kel Assouf to the dance floor, somewhere between Brussels and Niamey.

CHEB GERO (fr | Akuphone)
Cheb Gero (Fabrice Gery) is a music lover who runs the international Akuphone label from Paris. Fabrice’s DJ alias illustrates the diversity of the musical worlds he shares: ‘Cheb’ is a homage to Algerian Raï singers, whereas ‘Gero’ refers to the Japanese noise cult band of the same name, and to his own surname. His DJ sets consist of a broad range of music; Arab, African, and (South East) Asian folk, grooves and beats.

✹ DUCKFOOD (roffa | Pantropical, Rebel Up)
Duckfood’s awe-inspiring music collection absorbs anything from Renaissance to Moroccan trance. His DJ selections are colourful and not preoccupied by categorization. Because of his love for the Maghreb and Arab music he is hellbent to make something extra special of this evening.
