Fri 13 Dec: Rebel Up @ Giraffes & Penguins, KulturA, Liege

Oh yes, time again for a Giraffes & Penguins weekender in Liege + Brussels.

Starting on friday the 13th (woohoo!) in Liege at the amazing KulturA club.
Arab Bass night with special guest Ghoula from Tunisia and Liege guest Cedric Blavier. hosted by Rebel Up, Le Grand Mechant Loop & Tropical DJipsies.

We’ll dive together into the infinite richness of arab music and its evolution from traditional forms to the most contemporary and wild electronic sounds.

Ghoula (TN/FR)
Ghoula is a tunisian self-made musician and producer. In Tunisia, music has been a generational vehicle for popular symbols, images and myths. Despite its small size, Ghoula sees his native country as a north African crossroad where legacies came to settle. As a producer and multi-instrumentalist, Ghoula creates genre-defying sets through both acoustics and samples. Obsessed with North African multimedia heritage, Ghoula has been digging up vinyls from flea markets and old Tunisian medinas, bringing back vestiges of forgotten music cooked on top of contemporary upbeat dance rhythms. His album Hlib el Ghoula was released on the Shouka label and he is now preparing his second album.

Cédric Blavier (Liege)
A music lover, digger and dj, Cédric Blavier makes his weapons in his native Belgium, between Liège and Brussels. Amateur of ultra-dancing ethnic music as well as planing electro downtempo, he succeeds in surprising sets to combine the effective and the experimental, the organic and the synthetic, the modern and the traditional. His musical synthesis meets a growing success in the world of electronic music, with notably appearances noticed in the festivals Nuits Sonores, Chateau Perché (France) or Taka Tuka (Hungary)!

Check out this lineup! > the amazingly exotic Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band (Thailand!), Kriminal Hammond Inferno (BE), our good buddies Maga Bo (BR/US) & Lowdjo (BE) and an outside live set by Lapin Cru (BE)

paradise molam
The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band
brings Molam folk & lovely Thai party music from the ’60s and ’70s in a modern sexy sound. DJ’s Maft Sai and Chris Menist put out reissues on Finders Keepers and Soundway and as a result of the succes, they formed this Thai live band. Smong the musicians there’s the 72-year old Sawai Kaewsombat on khaen mouth organ and Kammao Perdtanon aka the ‘Jimi Hendrix of the Phin’ (thai guitar lute). These 2 icons of the Molam sound of the Northern Isan region of Thailand are accompanied by young percussionists and the DJ’s.


Maga Bo
‘s sound is drenched in deep Brazilian rhythms (maracatu, samba reggae, capoeira…), with dark bass and heavy layers of percussion as a perfect symbiose of organic & electronic sounds. organische en elektronische klanken, inspired by folklore, hip hop and soundsystem culture. Dancing assured! Check this recent Brazilian underground compilation that he compiled!
