A special night in Studio Marcel (Recyclart) this saturday 22 Feb >>>>>> >>>> > > >>>>> > >
Our very own Rebel Up! SebCat will let us see contemporary street level India (Rajasthan) through his eyes but also through other eyes, through photographs, live movie clips and video clips. Rajasthan culture without the safe typecasted tourist view but roughly enhanced by encounters with locals, having stayed in their homes and villages and getting a close feel of their daily lives.

The Indian streets are the main theme tonight, as this is also the release party of the double vinyl ‘Rajasthan Street Sounds’, recorded by Seb and just out now on the amazing outernational SUBLIME FREQUENCIES label. The sounds on this LP are sincere and filled with context by who sings & plays them > no big artists, but the Rajasthani street folk musicians who have a tough life and never get the right respect for their musical skills within their own society. These recordings were made in 2007 with folk musicians on the street or in their homes, on regional folk instruments such as ravannattah violin, kamaycha cello, ektara lute of morchang jewish harp.
a sufi & hindu spiritual concert by the Ali Kawa Brothers (Rajasthan) who hail from a musical family of Rajasthani master musicians from the pink city of Jaipur. On vocals, tabla and harmonium for a true feeling of the trancendental islamic & hindu reverence sound that can be heard allover Rajasthan
The whole night will be coloured with projections of photo’s by Seb Bassleer, David Tesinsky, Maarten Van Der Glas, Vanessa Verbeiren, Jet van Zwieten and Neire Le Neiro, as well as movie projections of road & music clips by Maarten Van Der Glas in a different room. There should be fresh chai and spicy fried snacks available for a real taste of the Indian streets,
+ Hellvete (BE)
Glen Steenkiste alias Hellvete is a member of psych outfit Sylvester Anfang II and also of the Kraak and Funeral Folk label. He draws influences from old folk music and drones to make hypnotic tapestries. Tonight he will play a special warmup drone-out set of multi-layered harmonium & sruti box airwaves beyond the realm of raga into eternal bliss.
this wednesday at KultuurKaffee on the VUB campus another KK World night, with a concert of the Dhoad Gypsies of Rajasthan. This group consists of 4 brothers from a musical caste family that has been playing Rajasthani folk music for generations back to the times of the maharaja’s. Expect a mix of traditional Rajasthani folk and semi-classical Northern Indian compositions on tabla, harmonium, dholak drum and castanets, aided by a female dancer who will perform stunning traditional dance moves from Rajasthan.
Rebel Up! Sebcat will play support with Rajasthani & Indian sounds before & afterwards, with cassettes from his personal collection and other folklore, sprirituals, folkpop and filmy dance sounds from allover India and Pakistan, collected from 2 different travels in that region. + with added colourful visuals from travels in Rajasthan & India in 2007!
