Yo folks,

contrabanda 24 04

Another fun Contrabanda night coming up in Bonnefooi for all sounds latino, afro & global!
After our last fully packed night with Uproot Andy, we like to present > > >

DJ Cucurucho (ES/PT) (Groovalizacion Radio)
DJ Cucurucho, co-founder and selector of international Groovalizacion Radio, designs a DJ SET blending contemporary ethnic music all over the world from the vintage sounds to the tropical bass. Best contemporary and classic dance music together from wildly different times and places, connecting “East” and “West”, acoustic and electronic, traditional and hyper-modern, Dj Cucurucho creates hybrid sets, making “Ancient-Futurist” groove collages!

Support by the Rebel Up! dj’s.
what Bonnefooi says about us: These guys are some of Brussels’ most underestimated Global Groove Dj’s, with a musical network from Rajasthan to New Yorkistan and a musical selection that goes even farther and deeper into tropicalism and obscure global dance music. Sebcat is also a fulltime musical nexus, the way he blends his global grooves together in a party he also re-arranges, feeds and stimulates musical culture: as a re-distributor of records (importing Sahel Sounds records of Sublime Frequencies), in writings and research (check his writings for Gonzo Circus or his compilation on Sublime Frequencies titled *Rajasthan Street Music*) or as a curator of countless parties and concerts. Leblanc is an experienced dj & collector for the more rougher contemporary street dance music from around & below the equator. Also a distributor of African field recording records, curator of global music documentaries and a darn great cook of global dishes. Whatever you will get from him, in sound or food, it will be filled with specials spices and hotness. Caliente!
