Rebel Up playing @ Pan-Amafropean party in a new place > Sexyland
First, from 13:00 til 14:00 a session at Red Light Radio, tune into the live stream.
We wished our parties were sexy, but somehow our guests often get disgustingly sweaty from dancing, or end up too drunk to look any good.. But not this time! This time we’ll be in SEXYLAND, and it’ll be slick, smooth and sensual..
✫pan-amafropeans in SEXYLAND✶ will be:
• a défilé of our favourite (and sexy) DJs
• a selection of sleazy, dirty and exotic musics
• cheap & stale (and maybe cold..) beer
• fresh food by sensuous Silvia (De Bakbrommer)
• (oh.. and an intimate little party for our 4 yrs avec une surprise)
This friday playing at Le Guess Who? festival in RASA world music venue, check their fingerlicking good lineup, just awesome and many of our friends playing too!
Ogoya Nengo will do one of her first performances outside of Kenya. Born in the 1930s in a small village at the shores of Lake Victoria, she soon joined the socially critical Dodo singers, a genre and community which is in danger of vanishing. Ogoya became the rave of her time, singing to great chiefs, warriors and even colonial officers and missionaries. Despite Ogoya being a legendary Kenyan folk artist with a career spanning over three decades little people outside Kenya have had the chance of ever hearing her and her ensemble.
Inspired by traditional Ethiopian songs, uKanDanZ is an explosive musical hybrid of styles which, as the name suggests, are made to dance to. With guitar, bass, drums and tenor sax they occupy a vibrant place somewhere between rock, improvised jazz, noise and Ethiogroove. Front and centre is charismatic vocalist Asnake Guebreyes from Addis Abeba, chanting Ethiopian soul melodies that transcends the highly energetic music to unheard places. They deliberately cross all traditional musical borders, creating something new and unique while at the same time staying true to the origins of the genres they magically melt into one.
as always our Rebel Up! sounds will be in African, Latino, Caribbean, Arabic and Asian global spheres, tripping around the world in unknown sounds to make you bounce.

Brazilian NGO Tiaozinho
During the next 3 months, a sports project for children and adolescents in one of the Sao Paulo favela’s will be organised. The aim is to stimulate social skills, values like team spirit, playing together and fairplay so that the youths can make positive decisions in their future life, but the main goal simply is to just have fun and enjoy themselves. Sports that will feature are football, volleyball & circus techniques and some other activities. Also friendly tournaments will be organised for the children as an end goal to all their sports training and with an incentive for them to invite their family into their playing environment as part of the social process. For this project, they need to raise money to buy sports equipment (balls, nets, clothing etc) and to cover other costs. www.tiaozinho.org.br
