Kaito Winse comes from a Burkina Faso griot music family. From an early age he was formed in the traditions of his family in the village of Lankoué, Sourou region in the north of Burkina Faso.
As a modern jeli or griot, Kaito is the message bearer for the traditions of Burkina Faso. His solo debut album “Kaladounia” ( ‘Here the world’ / ‘ici le monde’), takes its impetus from the desire to perpetuate these traditions. The tama drum, the toutlé and the Fulani flutes and the traditional mouth bow accompany the songs addressed to Ancestors and newborns, and appeal to the force of planet earth. Traditional and spiritual techniques are renewed and unveiled on this album.
“Kaladounia” also takes its inspiration from the richness of human values and the need to communicate with nature. His mouth bow leads the voice and carries uplifting messages. His voice rises in in the local Burkinabé languages of Mooré, Samo and a little bit of French and pays homage to women, to their courage, to love and to life. The songs reveal the mastery of traditional musical techniques and rhythms, a spirituality rooted in ancestral values of men and nature, and a powerful and striking voice you won’t forget. This is the world, this is the place to do good things while you are here.
Released on Rebel Up Records, supported by NGHE Mediatheque, Enthusiast Music and Muziekpublique.
Tomorrow saturday 03.10 Kaito Winse will play an album release show at Muziekpublique theatre with Malick Pathé Sow. For info and tickets check here.
It’s Bandcamp Friday where Bandcamp waives their fee for 24H in support of artists and labels, so please support! 🙂
This friday, a solidarity fundraiser event for Beirut in Recyclart.
6 Brussels DJ’s will donate their art to support the victims, NiXiE,Rebel Up SebCat, Deejay Kwak, Soumaya Phéline, DC Salas and Sara Dziri. Finally, to close gently, we will be guided by Mikhali, a young DJ from Beirut who has recently moved to Brussels.
Supporting the Remeil district which is located a couple of hundreds meters away from the harbour. This neighbourhood is the home of several major hospitals, several schools, studios of artists, a park for whom – prior to the events – the residents were fighting to save this rare green area of the town. The complicated political and economical situation makes it still hard to transfer funds to Lebanon and to identify associations clearly offering the guarantees that are required.
Today Friday is Bandcamp Friday again (all revenues going directly to our artists/label). It’s also the Independent Label Market 24H online edition in collaboration with Bandcamp with dozens of international labels and artists participating and even livestream performances. We are participating too with our label and offer signed records by these 3 Brussels artists: Cheb Runner, Nikanor and Susobrino. (see release pages for offers).
We hope you doing fine during this ‘deconfinement’ stage, slowly getting back to normal life. Artists worldwide are still in serious limbo, with no concerts, parties and festivals happening this summer up to september, meaning many of them will continue to have no income from their art for the next few months.
Today Bandcamp again waives their commission fee in support of artists and label, which they will do every 1st friday of the month during this crisis and the summer.
If you would like to support our label and artists, please see our catalogue. We have lowered prices on many digital and physical items, check it out!
Bandcamp is again kindly waiving their fees for 24h during May Day, so that artists can receive more money with their digital music sales or merch.
At Rebel Up we combined this with a 15% discount action that will run for the whole weekend until sunday midnight 25 May. Check our Bandcamp page and claim your discount.
And we have another May Day special >
a new digital only release on our label by Satanique Samba Trio titled “Instant Karma”.
Satanique Samba Trio’s most recent release WAS SUPPOSED TO BE the first liquid album in history: taking advantage of the short-lived exposure provided by Instagram Stories, your favorite Brazilian experimental quintet (yes, quintet), known for its brief-but-complex-deconstructed-Brazilian-rhythm-pieces, presented the world with a 15-second lo-fi tune every day throughout the month of February 2019. It’s a true trip into the tropi-concrete world of SS3.
In accordance with Instagram Stories’ rules, each song was available online for exact 24 hours, only to disappear FOREVER, leaving a faint sketch of Brazil’s musical diversity on the ethereal surface of your memory. Ground breaking, right? Yeah, but only for a year or so, as illegally downloaded versions of the tunes started to pop up around the Russian web. Well, it was fun while it lasted.
The good news is now you can have Instant Karma in your HD as a chock-full digital package. Let it drip.
