Fri 27 july > Rebel Up @ Giraffes & Penguins w/ Maga Bo, l’Uzinne, Bxl

🌶🎵 GL🌎BAL UNDERGR🌎UND 🎵🌶

Giraffes, penguins and other global party animals, get ready! An amazing musical globetrotter will bring us the perfect vibes to go with this tropical Belgian summer!

Relentlessly traveling the world as DJ, producer and ethnomusicologist, MAGA BO is on tour in Europe this summer and will make a stop at L’uZinne. His performances are so eclectic and impregnated with so many musical cultures that we cannot predict what will happen. All we can say is that he knows hundreds of ways to make us sweat 🙂

But that’s not all! Four other global DJ’s will also guide you through this global underground trip: LeBlanc from Rebel Up, Radio Frappè, Dragan and Le Grand Méchant Loop.

Expect also to get lost in a crazy labyrinth set up by HeyLàBas and to enjoy a nice pay-as-you-like meal prepared by Up Cooking.

Maastricht originated project, the duo from Radio Frappè is now settled in Brussels to spread the good vibes. Radio hosts, event curators and DJs, they will make you bounce on the global sounds that make their universe: from brazilian mpb and sambass to heavy african rythms, from tasty dub to carribean melodies, Radio Frappè will make you travel through time and space, and deconstruct the notion of borders.

〰🔅〰 Dragan (Radio Panik) 〰🔅〰
Since the age of 16, Dragan has been listening to and playing a broad range of genres, from jazz to techno, from afrodisco classics to global beats. Not belonging to any particular tribe, he shares a sense of freedom and escapism with some of his heroes such as Dj Marcelle and Lefto. After his break, he’s been busy spinning in various places such as Urban Spree Berlin, Esperanzah! festival, Vk Concerts, LaVallée, Giraffes and Penguins, Bonnefooi… Every first Saturday of the month, Dragan hosts a show on Radio Panik 105.4 FM, named Flux Tendu. As the name suggests, this is an exploration through thin relations between tracks, a sort of musical cadavre exquis.

〰🔅〰 Le Grand Méchant Loop 〰🔅〰
“I prefer to make the little pigs dance rather than eat them!”
Le Grand Méchant Loop is global underground DJ and percussionist based in Brussels. He shares his passion for global music through the Giraffes & Penguins events that he has been organizing since 2017. He will take us on a surprising journey, spiced up with live percussion, where the genuine sounds of kologo, zurna, ferrinho and gwoka blend to create the kind of groove that can only be explained on a dancefloor!
