Sat 1 June: Rebel Up warmup @ Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek, Ekko, Utrecht

Cosmosis presents a series of concerts with the most special pop music from non-Western countries. What can you expect? No traditional world music, but urgent and danceable future music from distant countries.

Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek
Two years after the great success of the single “Nem Kaldi”, psych-pop sensation Derya Yildirim & Grup Şimşek finally released the long-awaited debut album “Kar Yağar” on Bongo Joe Records. And it was well worth the wait! The distinctive sound of the bağlama, the great voice of Derya Yildirim and the band makes the whole more modern, more danceable and more psychedelic. A hymn for the rich history of the Anatolian folk rock, restored and translated into the 21st century. They are coming to Ekko Utrecht just a week after the album comes out. Not to be missed!


Warmup & cooling down tunes in Turkish, Anatolian and Levantine sounds by Rebel Up SebCat.

Wedn 19 Dec > Rebel Up Sebcat @ Altin Gün + YĪN YĪN concert, Het Depot, Leuven

On wednesday, Rebel Up SebCat will play dj support at the duo concert of Altin Gün and YĪN YĪN in Het Depot in Leuven. expect lots of Asian and Turkish psyche tunes and other global sound gems before, between & after the concerts.

Altin Gün adds a new chapter to the revival of Turkish psychedelic folk rock. Excuse me? Yes, Altin Gün (‘golden day’) literally blows new life into the psychedelic folk rock that was popular in Turkey in the 70s. Their debut album ‘On’ (Bongo Joe Records) shows what happens when you open doors between Turkish folk songs on the one hand and a dirty blend of funk rhythms, wah-wah guitars and analogue organs on the other. The Amsterdammers who come from various backgrounds (Turkish but also Indonesian and Dutch) comfortably create their work in the adventurous no-man’s land that exists between these two worlds.

support act: YĪN YĪN
Using South East Asian music from the 60´s and 70´s as a main inspiration, whilst also bringing their individual musical backgrounds, record collections and interests to the table, the recording spree of this Dutch band resulted in a remarkable set of songs mixing world music, disco, funk and electronic music.
