Don’t worry come and let the rhythm take you! www.akwaabamusic.com/category/artists/bbrave-artists/
The temperature in the city is rising so we also are heating up our Thursday nights, inviting some real hot acts from Ghana!
It’s Hemelvaart/Ascension, so hope you’re having a bridge weekend for another fine late night out 🙂
Rebel Up! dj’s will open the night around 22:00, followed by a live set of King Ayisoba around 23h/midnight, one of the leading kologo lute players when it comes to reinventing Northern Ghana’s traditional music. Distinctly original but keeping a more roots and universal approach to his music which gives it the power to touch both young and old. Deep and beautiful. He will be accompagnied by 2 Ghanese brass players from a highlife band and perhaps a talking drum too!
Moving on we have the Rebel Up! crew (do they really need introduction as the Nr.1 Tropical Bass soundsystem in Bxl?!) and their special guest from Ghana: Dj BBrave!
