Hello Bxl,

This Friday @ La Tentation. Afro Groove night with Burkinabé Belgo band Afrikän Protoköl. Documentary Release + Concert + DJ Set Party

Afrikän Protoköl is the Afro Jazz Sextet started by Belgian saxophonist Guillaume Van Parys. After meeting with drummer Moïse Ouattara from Burkina Faso, he developed a special style based on traditional rhythms from Burkina Faso and West Africa. Jazzy riffs, grooves and improvisations melt together into what we might call a “warm and conscious cross-cultural fusion.” With a rhythmic section from Burkina Faso and horns from Belgium and Ivory Coast, Afrikän Protoköl brings a very colorful and lively show. Better get ready for some heat!

Before the show, a documentary about their trip & recording session in Burkina Faso. For the afterparty, Rebel Up! SebCat will take to the decks with some pure African dancefloor selections

Programme :
20h30 Opening
21h00 Documentary release
22h00 Concert Afrikän Protoköl

Fri 24 April > Rebel Up! Soundclash & Miaaauw Soundz present; The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band @ OCCII, Amsterdam

11079603_814874351941334_6586580183288662524_n(1)

The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band 
The band plays vintage molam music from Isan, in the North-East of Thailand, with a 21st century twist. Featuring Kammao Perdtanon on phin (Thai lute), Sawai Kaewsombat on khaen, a type of bamboo harmonica, and backed by Piyanart Jotikasthira on bass, Phusana Treeburut on drums and Chris Menist on percussion the band have just completed a successful 2nd tour of Europe. Whilst based on the traditional molam sounds of Isan, the band also draw out the trance-like qualities of the music be it the repeated motifs of ‘Sao Sa Kit Mae’ lead by Sawai’s ethereal khaen, or the driving grooves of ‘Lam San Disco’ where Kammao’s psyched out phin comes to the fore. Rooted in tradition yet with an eye to the future, The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band have already made waves on the live stage, and their first studio recording very much continues in the same vein. Chris Menist and Maft Sai are also behind the highly acclaimed ‘The Sound of Siam’ compilations on Soundway Records, as well as releases for Finders Keepers, Light In The Attic and their own Paradise Bangkok label.
