Fri 29 March > Rebel Up Sebcat @ Rumbaristas concert, Ancienne Belgique

Rumbaristas is a crazy quartet with Spanish, French and Belgian roots. They present cheery ‘balkanorumba’ and this international explanation is included in that: ‘Rumbaristas stands for an unbalanced lively and colourful mix of Latin American flavour, with the passion of the Balkan music. A pretty senseless mix of Catalan rumba and Sicilian tarantella, spiced up with a touch of ska, folk, reggae, cumbia and even avant-garde.

DJ support from 19h onwards & after the show by Rebel Up SebCat & Miguel Menendez (Rumba Hispano Belga) in rumba sounds to southern european and latin american folk.

◊ FANNA-FI-ALLAH
This seven-man company from Pakistan & Canada is celebrating the Pakistani qawwali tradition – an ancient form of Sufi religious music from Asia – such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan did in the 80s-90s. And although they have been active for 20 years, the band seems to break through this year with a wider audience.

◊ RUDRESH MAHANTHAPPA & the Indo-Pak Coalition
Pitchfork recently described his style as ‘jaw-dropping’ and called him ‘one of the finest saxophonists going’. AllMusic also lauded and titled: “One of the strongest voices of the jazz scene.” His latest album ‘Agrima’ reflects ‘the vibrant presence of Indian rhythmic and melodic elements in a charged, modern improvisational framework born of the New York jazz scene’.
