This friday Amsterdam people!

Sublime Frequencies tour night in OCCII with 2 international bands; Baba Commandant & his Mandingo Band from Burkina Faso and duo Senyawa from Indonesia, plus duo Sharif Sehnaoui & Michael Zerang.

Since 15 years, American label SUBLIME FREQUENCIES enriches the music world as a specialist in non-western music. Besides music, they also publish books, documentaries and films. Tonight they present two live artists signed on their label: Senyawa (Indonesia) and Baba Commandant (Burkina Faso). Also Canadian-Egyptian duo Sharif Sehnaoui & Michael Zerang will perform an early set. DJ support comes from the label owner Hisham Mayet of Sublime Frequencies, Rebel Up and Papelon Kifesh.

Senwaya
this duo from Yogyakarta is headed by Rully Shabara and Wukir Suryardi. Indonesian traditional music forms the basis, but the duo uses playing techniques from experimental genres to create a completely unique sound. Hardcore metal, improvisation and traditional ritual music played with an intensity as if punk. Singer Shabare uses vocal traditions of the island in his singing but can also heavy metal grunting. Suryardi plays self-built instruments with names like ‘Gary’, ‘Bambu Wukir’ and ‘Aker Mahoni’. During performances, the duo uses homemade electronics to edit the sound of the vocals and instruments live. Their new album ‘Sujud’ has just been released.
