Sat 1 June: Rebel Up warmup @ Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek, Ekko, Utrecht

Cosmosis presents a series of concerts with the most special pop music from non-Western countries. What can you expect? No traditional world music, but urgent and danceable future music from distant countries.

Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek
Two years after the great success of the single “Nem Kaldi”, psych-pop sensation Derya Yildirim & Grup Şimşek finally released the long-awaited debut album “Kar Yağar” on Bongo Joe Records. And it was well worth the wait! The distinctive sound of the bağlama, the great voice of Derya Yildirim and the band makes the whole more modern, more danceable and more psychedelic. A hymn for the rich history of the Anatolian folk rock, restored and translated into the 21st century. They are coming to Ekko Utrecht just a week after the album comes out. Not to be missed!


Warmup & cooling down tunes in Turkish, Anatolian and Levantine sounds by Rebel Up SebCat.

Phoenician Drive (Bxl)
At the crossroads of Mediterranean folk music and psychedelic rock, Phoenician Drive was formed in summer 2015 by percussionist Diego Moscoso grouping 6 musicians from very different backgrounds (flamenco, Balkan, psychedelic rock’n’roll, jazz, post -punk / new wave) for blending traditional designs with fuzz guitars and oriental rhythms. In the footsteps of Erkin Koray and Orient Express and under the influence of ‘kraut-rock German (Neu !, CAN, Faust etc.) and soundtracks 60’s music, Phoenician Drive Search hypnotic trance by relying on oriental grooves. Two demos were recorded in December 2015 and quickly attracted interest in Brussels (Ateliers Claus WIELS, Recyclart, Atelier 210) and elsewhere (Rockerill, Area B in Paris). An EP is being mixed into the hands of Débruit (label ICI).

The concert will start at 20h sharp by a prologue without electricity, enlightened by 400 artisanal candles.
