Fri 19 Oct > Rebel Up Records album release party Marockin’ Brass @ Met X, Les Marolles Bxl

Rebel Up is proud to present their 7th release > the album release party of Brussels/Moroccan gnawa jazz band Marockin’ Brass, who will present their new album ‘Beats & Pieces’ for the first time during an in-house concert at MetX in les Marolles!  and what better > FREE IN!

Marockin’ Brass is the brainchild band of jazz composer/music maker Luc Mishalle, together with Brussels Moroccan musicians such as Maalem Driss Filali (guimbri, vocals), Abdessamad Semlali and Badr Derras, aided by percussionist Roel Poriau (Think of One / Antwerp Gyspy Ska Orchestra) and Tunisian electronic beatmaker Sofyann Ben Youssef (Kel Assouf, Ammar808). Also this big band is aided by Brussels multicultural musicians Esinam Dogbatse, Jean-Paul Estievenart, Veronique Delmelle, Pascal Rousseau, Jean Gnonlonfoun and a string of guest musicians.

Expect some steaming gnaoua or sweaty shaabi-funk accompanied by some redhot brass and free flowing jazz that will blow the sand out of your ears!
You can already listen to and pre-order the album via Bandcamp.

🎵 Extra warmup performance by VelotroniX & afterparty with Rebel Up (DJ set)

🎵 The album will be released on vinyl, through Rebel Up and on CD, through on our own A-Shams. Both for sale at the event!!
