Back in business for this new year full of promises. At least this next Saturday we’ll make sure you’ll be grooving at Cafe De Vinger. Hot music are welcome in these times and Christmas has been kind on new sound collecting. Get ready for mashing tunes from all around the world. This time the benefit will go to activity project for Brazilian street kids.
SebCat & Palm M will be happy to see you there, with colourful sounds & visuals. FB event here >
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
Rebel Up! Soundclash in Den Haag Sat. 11th of January @ Cafe De Vinger
Starts at 21.00
Entrance fee : 3 euro (free entrance before 22.30)
Bagijnestraat 25 (small street right next to the Stadhuis/Bibliotheek building in Spui)
We’re back from Russia where we had incredible gigs in St Petersburg and Moscow along with The Ex, De Kift and Skip and Die. Plenty of memories and slight hangover but Den Haag hasn’t heard from us for too long and that’s why we’re ready to let Cafe De Vinger tremble again from the various vibes we’re aiming at you. For those who like vintage Afro and Latino sounds come early to show your best moves, the ones who like rougher bassy beats will be delighted to hear DJ Mataklap is coming to deliver his long time experienced mixes, it can be New Wave Cumbia, Moombah as well as Reggada or Shangaan… If you don’t know what that means, come and find out for yourself, your heartbeats will do the rest.
Special guest of the night is Agga resident Mataklap (ex-Bomb Diggy), who since this year rides other global soundwaves to surely to make folks shake. Rebel Up! residents Palm M and SebCat will take up the flame to keep the night burning with swinging global styles.
As always your entrance fee shall go towards a good cause. Profits of the night will go to an orphanage project in Indonesia. This summer, Mataklap spent some time helping out at the Saewa Dharma Children’s Home in Pakisan, Bali. This home takes care of children whose parents are unable to do so. This is mostly due to poverty. Apart from providing these children a home and food, Saewa Dharma focuses on building spiritual strength, an appreciation of morality and education. The children all go to school when they’re old enough, and at the home itself they receive additional lessons in Yoga and English language. They are also frequently exposed to foreign cultures by volunteers from overseas. The home itself maintains an intimate atmosphere, with three volunteers who care for the children round the clock. They rely completely on donations, mostly from the immediate community itself, as well as various donations from different sources.
