It’s about time for a steamy third Rebel Up! Soundclash night to give this Brussels winter some deserved sunshine! Expect a fully packed world trip in music where all borders are strictly taboo and in which the spirit of the global diaspora lives. A bit of acoustic ethnographics, a dose of innovative lo-fi & hi-fi electronics and a heavy dash of worldly kitsch. Or for the purists; Soukous, Afro funk, Soca, Roots, Balkan, Mestizo, Chaabi, Funana, Asiatic funk, Indian folkpop, Arabian techofolk, Global Bass & much more.
DJ Sebcat & Palm M of the nomadic Rebel Up! collective will serve up a tasty mishmash of sunny sound, while guest dj’s Brian Hainaut & Jean Mikili (Bal du Canal/BXL) will bring tropical tunes from the Brussels brousse that will make you shake, chouffé chouffé!
Rebel Up! is a not-for-profit collective that organises fundraiser nights for small charity organisations. Tonight’s funds will go to the Belgian/Rwandese humanitarian organisation Igitego Inyange ASBL who support education and healthcare projects in Rwandese villages.
During the night they will be selling specially prepared Rwandese snacks, yum yum! Come dance, taste & donate!
