30.01 – 10.02: Rebel Up on Euro tour w/ Nahawa Doumbia in BE/NL/DE/FR/CH

hello friends,

for the next 2 weeks from 30.01 until 11.02, Rebel Up SebCat will be touring with Malian singer Nahawa Doumbia and her acoustic band. Not as DJ, but managing the band on the road, taking them from venue to venue through Belgium (Antwerp, Gent, Leffinge), Netherlands (Leiden), Germany (Dusseldorf), France (Paris) and Switzerland (Baden, Geneve & Dudingen).

Since the 1970’s, she is one of the main female voices of the Malian Wassoulou style. Check our her recent reissue on the Awesome Tapes from Africa label, it’s pure bliss.
On the tour they will have merch for sale (CD’s and vinyls) at very fair prices.

See the tour dates & venues above, come and say hello!

On saturday 8 Feb, SebCat will spin global tunes in Geneva together with the Bongo Joe team at Chez Jean-Luc cabaret bar into the night. Drop by & swing ๐Ÿ™‚
