This friday, an Brazilian traditional electronic night at Recyclart!
Sociedade Recreativa arose from the meeting between Maga Bo and the French-Brazilian trio ‘Forro de rebeca’. Lovely airy music (live accordion and violin) from the tradition of the Nordeste (Samba de Coco, Capoeira, Baiao, Maracatu …) discrete but deadly effective mixed with the electronics of Maga Bo. https://sociedaderecreativa.bandcamp.com
closing the night with an electro-roots set > Maga Bo needs no introduction: one of the ‘founding fathers’ of the tropical bass, drenched deep in Brazilian rhythms (maracatu, samba reggae, capoeira …), with dark bass lines and thick layers of percussion. An example of a fluid interaction between organic and electronic sounds, inspired by hip hop and the soundsystem culture – but also by the middle east and the rest of your earthquake. https://magabo.com
Support by Rebel Up SebCat into Afro Brazilian roots & electronic spheres.

On wednesday, Rebel Up SebCat will play dj support at the duo concert of Altin Gün and YĪN YĪN in Het Depot in Leuven. expect lots of Asian and Turkish psyche tunes and other global sound gems before, between & after the concerts.
Altin Gün adds a new chapter to the revival of Turkish psychedelic folk rock. Excuse me? Yes, Altin Gün (‘golden day’) literally blows new life into the psychedelic folk rock that was popular in Turkey in the 70s. Their debut album ‘On’ (Bongo Joe Records) shows what happens when you open doors between Turkish folk songs on the one hand and a dirty blend of funk rhythms, wah-wah guitars and analogue organs on the other. The Amsterdammers who come from various backgrounds (Turkish but also Indonesian and Dutch) comfortably create their work in the adventurous no-man’s land that exists between these two worlds. https://lesdisquesbongojoe.bandcamp.com/album/on
support act: YĪN YĪN Using South East Asian music from the 60´s and 70´s as a main inspiration, whilst also bringing their individual musical backgrounds, record collections and interests to the table, the recording spree of this Dutch band resulted in a remarkable set of songs mixing world music, disco, funk and electronic music. https://yinyinband.bandcamp.com
Rebel Up Soundclash x Akuphone label night, with live sets by Amsterdam duo dahaW ⅃ꓘ and French duo Ko Shin Moon.
Imagine an outernational sound that defies borders, the meeting of ethnic folk music in underground spheres. Sound from the past brought alive into the present via the frequencies and vibrations of strings, percussion and analogue synths. The cultural counterculture against the right wing tendencies and normalities of today will not be silenced. We want you to be part of this, join our ritual as we dance the night away to beautiful songs and hidden gems from around the world.
Earlier in the day we will play a live session at Red Light Radio from 17-18h. stream us here > http://redlightradio.net
dahaW ⅃ꓘ (GR/SYR) *live*
Somewhere was the beginning/Somehow will be the end/Everything is chaos/All is ONE “KL wahad” (Oud/folk guitar). In their first ever concert, they will explore the possibilities of the endless improvisation between borders and freedom.
Paris duo Axel Moon and Niko Shin blur temporal and geographical boundaries. As Ko Shin Moon they mix acoustic instruments from different regions of the world though analogue machines, traditional instruments, electronic sampling and field recordings, taking the stage with a Saz and heaps of analogic synths. The first album of the band is a bodily trip through hybrid territories, fantasy soundscapes and colorful collages: from Oriental Europe to Northern Africa, Middle East or Southeast Asia and beyond. Reversing analogical listening in digital synthesis, as music for imaginary traveling in dancefloor trance. After numerous summer festivals allover Europe and Morocco, they have just returned from a residency in Caïro, Egypt and played at Trans Musicales Rennes Festival.
Genuine music lover and chronic collector, Cheb Gero has cleared up and digged into musical worlds ever since his teens. In 2015, He launched outernational label Akuphone in an “archiving” spirit, drawn by a desire to “explore the world through music”. Far from supporting a romantic or fetishist vision of extra-Western music, the label aims at linking these productions to their historical and political contexts, placing them back in the social and cultural conditions in which they emerged. He hosts the radio shows Decolonize Ur Mind and Radio Gero, as well as Parisian Northern African music nights such as Belleville Habibi. Check out his live cassette mix > https://akuphone.com/catalog/Z https://akuphone.bandcamp.com
