10-14 June: Rebel Up @ Outernational Friend:Ship tour in Berlin & Hamburg

4 day tour in Germany: with 3 gigs in Berlin & Hamburg with Praed, Spiritzcualic Enhancement Center, Alexa D!Saster and more guests!

PRAED
Founded by Raed Yassin and Paed Conca in 2006, “Praed” is a band whose musical oeuvre can be described as a mixture of Arabic popular music, free jazz, and electronics.
In the same year, the band made its first public appearance in Al Maslakh festival in Switzerland, immediately followed by a concert at the Irtijal festival in Beirut. Since then, the band has frequented numerous international music festivals and toured intensively world-wide, spanning Japan, Europe and Canada. Through these endeavors, the band has created a large global network with other renowned musicians as musical collaborators.

The duo’s body of work mainly explores the terrain of Arabic popular music (“Shaabi”) and its interconnectedness with other psychedelic and hypnotic musical genres in the world, such as free jazz, space jazz, and psychedelic rock among others. Since its inception, Praed has shown a very keen interest in this music as a medium that reflects Egyptian society’s complicated fabric. Through the research it conducted, the band began to discover a strong cultural connection between “Shaabi” sounds and the “Mouled” music is played in religious trance ceremonies. The hypnotizing psychedelic effect that was embedded in this genre also triggered thoughts around its similarity to other popular music in the world that employ forms of sonic delirium, such as free jazz and psychedelic rock.

Spiritczualic Enhancement Center
Like an infinite circle whose center is everywhere and circumference is nowhere, the Spiritczualic Enhancement Center is an outer-national musical caravan, meandering in a world of free-beat. Their eclectic ingredients create an alchemical soup ranging from jazz-infused atavistic-futurism to frequency meditation. Featuring original artworks exploring the realms of syncretism, environments are brought to life via live-drawing projections and spaces transformed into temples of spontaneity. Creating soundscapes that glimpse into synchronistic magic, the bizarre participants of this ensemble remain agnostic: are they magicians, or merely tricksters? The band was founded on Christmas 2017, by secretly transforming the backroom of an abandoned Ottoman building adjacent to the Old City of Jerusalem into a temporary musical space.

Within the two weeks of its existence, the Center morphed into an ever-evolving and collaborative idea. Like a caravan which collects participants as it travels, a growing group of ‘outernational’ musicians are being magnetized. Carrying the Spiritczualic Enhancement Center within themselves, they gather on occasion for recording and performing. Free beat.

Thu 20 Dec > Rebel Up @ After(no)Work w/ Fifteen Years Old (PE), Le Space Bxl

on thursday 20 dec, Rebel Up helps hosting a night at the Le Space activist / meeting place.

with special live guest Fifteen Years Old (PE) and DJ Alexa D!Saster (DE).

Fifteen Years Old is an autobiographical experimentation around music, performance, sex and other and multiple ways of love. It is the solo project of Solange Jacobs, Peruvian creator, former fellow of the Program of Independent Studies (PEI) of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (MACBA), knowledge that complements with her daily creative work, her job as web cam girl and more recently with cultural management as a salaried work. Solange works, lives, suffers and enjoys between Peru and Spain since 2010.

Before & after, Rebel Up SebCat will play taboo breaking tracks
with a riot grrl vibe intertwined with Peruvian folk laments that smash stereotypes on a global scale. Berlin DJ Alexa D Saster also joins in, a true riot grrl who is in Bxl for a few days and will bring some magic with organic, playful underground sounds.
