Live acts >

KEL ASSOUFTamashek rock, BXL
Out of nostalgia and the loneliness of the desert, Brussels based band Kel Assouf builds music around the Touareg Tamashek culture and the fight against discrimination. Key figure Aboubacar ‘Anana’ Harouna, a fledged tamasheq from Niger, speaks with his guitar, and uses it as a means to claim his rights without bloodshed. With one foot in the desert and the other in the urban jungle, Anana writes about events from the Sahara to here, about life in exile and about freedom, peace and respect for all peoples in the world. After their first album ‘Tin Hinane’ (in 2010) and second album ‘Tikounen’ (2016), Kel Assouf evolved into a new sound on their new album ‘Black Tenere’, released earlier this month on Glitterbeat Records. Tunisian producer Sofyann Ben Youssef immersed the band in a surprisingly contemporary production and sound, which expresses a cry of impotence against violence, injustice and pollution in the world. The result? Desert rock with stirring drums, mesmerizing guitar riffs, psychedelic melodies and Tamasheg vocals. African rhythms played by rock musicians, bring Kel Assouf to the dance floor, somewhere between Brussels and Niamey.

Ibaakuelectronic Senegal sounds, Dakar
Born in Dakar, originally from Casamance, Ibaaku is a prolific artist; not only a producer but also a multi-instrumentalist, author, composer & radio host. Hip hop, beat, afro-futurism & experimental electronic music are blended with Senegalese references & remixed local sounds to represent the major influences of his first opus album ‘Alien Cartoon’.

Sat 27 Sept > Rebel Up! Soundclash @ Salle Rogier Bxl, w/ special guests Capitol K & Rafael Aragon

Rebel-Up_2013_12_A6_web-poster

From september onwards, we will have new Rebel Up! Soundclash resident night every 2 months at Salle Rogier hosted by SebCat & LeBlanc. Every time with special international guests to make it even more special for all of you, bringing new global sounds to Brussels!


To kick off our first party night at Salle Rogier, we invite two special international guests for a night of cumbiatronics, global bass & digital global folk pop > Capitol K and Rafael Aragon!

 

Capitol K (UK – live)
The wizard producer of the Total Refreshment Studios and band member of Archie Bronson Outfit (Domino Records) will be performing his latest release “Andean Dub”. A collection of Cumbia Psych and Lofi, born of K’s wanderings through South America. An inspirational, original mix of deep Andean cumbia bass, analogue synth textures, sparkling percussion and spaced out live charango playing. Just check his amazing electronic cumbia sound below!

 

Rafael Aragon (FR – dj/live)
Rafael Aragón aka Rafiralfiro has latin and arabic roots but was born and raised between downtown Paris and its multicultural suburbs. Rafael’s eclectic taste and versatile take on music production, got him obsessed with the idea of mixing traditional folk music with contemporary electronic club music, looking for the perfect balance between the organic and synthetic, the past and the future. Rafael Aragon’s music is mainly club oriented, with heavy basses, infectuous rhythms, yet delicate, well balanced and highly psychedelic. You better be warned!

 

Rebel Up! dj’s SebCat & Leblanc
As residents and hosts of the night, Sebcat & LeBlanc will warm up the night and keep it going till late. Expect as always a diverse and eclectic mix of tunes from around the world. Global bass, digital folk pop, any good beats from the global south, rooted in local traditions… Select global, play local!

 

Visuals all night by VJ Alerta (CL/NL)
Latin inspired visuals by this Chilean wonder girl, who colourfully mashes traditional and modern latin spheres together into a warm digital psychedelic experience for the eye.
