Cami Layé Okún (Havana, Cuba)
Cuban DJ/selector who collects vinyl records from allover the world as a way of sharing stories through music with similar organic roots. Her sound spans from the tropical to the tribal; think African and Caribbean rhythms mixed with a Latin soul and sensibility, engaging audiences and dancefloors with Cuban disco, Afro-Caribbean rarities and tropical Amazonian funky grooves. Currently based in Havana, she is so far the only local DJ that produces and promotes events in a 100% vinyl format. Since 2020 Cami hosts her own monthly show ‘Insolar’ on London’s NTS Radio where she curated sunny music from different parts of the world.

Edna Martinez (Cartagena, Colombia / Berlin)
DJ / curator, artist and radio host from the Colombian Caribbean based in Berlin, Germany. Her musical selection is linked to her artistic research in which she explores autobiographical migratory routes with the concept of resistance as its axis. Her sound involves Afro-Caribbean organic rhythms, jazz bases, tribal polyrhythm, Arabic folklore, and more. She is the woman behind projects such as “Latinarab” a trip from Jaffa to the Arab Caribbean, and “El Volcán El Orgullo de Berlin”, the only soundsystem picó party in Germany. She also moderates monthly radio shows on Radio Alhara (Palestine), Worldwide FM (London) and Boxout.fm (India).

Fri 02.10 new release out on Rebel Up; Kaito Winse – Kaladounia. Burkinabé griot artist solo album with modern traditions and deep spiritual ancestral sounds.

Kaito Winse comes from a Burkina Faso griot music family. From an early age he was formed in the traditions of his family in the village of Lankoué, Sourou region in the north of Burkina Faso.

As a modern jeli or griot, Kaito is the message bearer for the traditions of Burkina Faso. His solo debut album “Kaladounia” ( ‘Here the world’ / ‘ici le monde’), takes its impetus from the desire to perpetuate these traditions. The tama drum, the toutlé and the Fulani flutes and the traditional mouth bow accompany the songs addressed to Ancestors and newborns, and appeal to the force of planet earth. Traditional and spiritual techniques are renewed and unveiled on this album.

“Kaladounia” also takes its inspiration from the richness of human values ​​and the need to communicate with nature. His mouth bow leads the voice and carries uplifting messages. His voice rises in in the local Burkinabé languages of Mooré, Samo and a little bit of French and pays homage to women, to their courage, to love and to life. The songs reveal the mastery of traditional musical techniques and rhythms, a spirituality rooted in ancestral values ​of men and nature, and a powerful and striking voice you won’t forget. This is the world, this is the place to do good things while you are here.

Released on Rebel Up Records, supported by NGHE Mediatheque, Enthusiast Music and Muziekpublique.

Tomorrow saturday 03.10 Kaito Winse will play an album release show at Muziekpublique theatre with Malick Pathé Sow. For info and tickets check here.

It’s Bandcamp Friday where Bandcamp waives their fee for 24H in support of artists and labels, so please support! 🙂

Fri 13 Sept: Rebel Up Records evening, 10inch vinyl release Satanic Samba Trio (BR) @ Recyclart, Bxl

Satanique Samba Trio: it’s not really a trio and they don’t play samba but they are quite satanic…. this mythical Brazilian band from the capital Brasilia performs funny, pertinent and surprising sound collages, an ongoing investigation into the aesthetic deconstruction of Brazil’s most popular musical traditions.

Friday September 13th, 2019 will be remembered in Music History for the release of their new 10inch vinyl “Mais Bad”, a conceptual sequel of the 2015 release “Mó Bad”. “Mais Bad” is a new collection of low fidelity bagatelles, forged into existence by Satanique Samba Trio’s thirst for aesthetical deconstruction. All instruments in this 10-track vinyl have been recorded with the same cheap cell phone from the early 2000’s. It is meant to sound desperate, harsh and absolutely surreal. A little over the top, maybe? Yeah, but hey: that’s just how a country in crisis should look and sound like. Right?

Listen here to “Mais Bad” on our Bandcamp, and see new videoclip below, warning: graphic medical images 🙂

Marisa Anderson (US – Portland)
All traditional American guitar styles played in virtuoso and amazing ways! A mixture of improvisation and fluid compositions, with references ranging from minimalism and drone gospel, blues, country and jazz. At nineteen, Marisa began to wander through the US to eventually settle, years later, in Portland, Oregon. Basically she followed a classical guitar training, but has created her unique own style by playing in country music groups, jazz and even the circus. In 2009 she released her first album, ‘The Golden Hour’, followed by ‘Mercury’ (2011), ‘Traditional and Public Domain Songs’ (2013) and ‘Into the Light’ (2015). Recently she was asked to make recordings for Beth Ditto and soundtracks fro films. Let yourself be transported by this hypnotic music!
