Sunday 05.09 > Rebel Up & Friends @ Saintklet, Bxl w/ Cami Layé Okún, Edna Martinez, Fresh Nunas & SebCat

After last year’s fun, Rebel Up & Friends are coming back at Saintklet summer outdoor terrace on the Bxl canalside! with a great international lineup of special guests DJ Cami Layé Okún, Edna Martinez & Fresh Nunas, hosted by SebCat.

Cami Layé Okún (Havana, Cuba)
Cuban DJ/selector who collects vinyl records from allover the world as a way of sharing stories through music with similar organic roots. Her sound spans from the tropical to the tribal; think African and Caribbean rhythms mixed with a Latin soul and sensibility, engaging audiences and dancefloors with Cuban disco, Afro-Caribbean rarities and tropical Amazonian funky grooves. Currently based in Havana, she is so far the only local DJ that produces and promotes events in a 100% vinyl format. Since 2020 Cami hosts her own monthly show ‘Insolar’ on London’s NTS Radio where she curated sunny music from different parts of the world.

Edna Martinez (Cartagena, Colombia / Berlin)
DJ / curator, artist and radio host from the Colombian Caribbean based in Berlin, Germany. Her musical selection is linked to her artistic research in which she explores autobiographical migratory routes with the concept of resistance as its axis. Her sound involves Afro-Caribbean organic rhythms, jazz bases, tribal polyrhythm, Arabic folklore, and more. She is the woman behind projects such as “Latinarab” a trip from Jaffa to the Arab Caribbean, and “El Volcán El Orgullo de Berlin”, the only soundsystem picó party in Germany. She also moderates monthly radio shows on Radio Alhara (Palestine), Worldwide FM (London) and Boxout.fm (India).

Fri 28.08 > Rebel Up @ Beirut Solidarity, Sounds of a City, Recyclart, Bxl

This friday, a solidarity fundraiser event for Beirut in Recyclart.

6 Brussels DJ’s will donate their art to support the victims, NiXiE, Rebel Up SebCat, Deejay Kwak, Soumaya Phéline, DC Salas and Sara Dziri. Finally, to close gently, we will be guided by Mikhali, a young DJ from Beirut who has recently moved to Brussels.

Supporting the Remeil district which is located a couple of hundreds meters away from the harbour. This neighbourhood is the home of several major hospitals, several schools, studios of artists, a park for whom – prior to the events – the residents were fighting to save this rare green area of the town. The complicated political and economical situation makes it still hard to transfer funds to Lebanon and to identify associations clearly offering the guarantees that are required.

With the help of the team at Belgium for Lebanon – België voor Libanon – La Belgique pour le Liban, you can give your donation in confidence. This is a genuine civic work between Lebanese on location as well as the large diaspora network of the Lebanese diaspora living all around the globe.

Another way to contribute is to listen and buy Lebanese artists’ albums, via Bandcamp links (we put the link below), a great way of supporting them and discovering an outstanding music scene.
