This friday a real special night with 2 live concerts between punk jazz, psyche folk and many other outernational sounds. and a Rebel Up dj set before, between & afterparty.

Echoes Of Zoo (BE)
Belgian jazz cat quartet with a animalistic punk jazz sound. Spearheaded by Nathan Daems (Black Flower), Falk Schrauwen, Bart Vervaeck and Lieven van Pée. Sometimes beastly violent, then again erudite & delicate. The generosity of the band works radically contagious on audiences. With echoes from the Balkans, the middle east but just as much from the nervous urban context. In other words, our village fanfare, which is an ode to the hybridity of Molenbeek. Listen here.

Cyril Cyril (CH)
Ancestral sounds from the underbelly of psychedelic folk. The duo Cyril Cyril (of La Tene / Bongo Joe Records) produces sounds that make you long for a nomadic existence in unknown mountains. Armed with a banjo, guitar, drum kit and prophetic words, they take us like a phoenix to the dance floor. Listen to their album here.

Rebel Up will mix up raw punk with spiritual jazz to outernational psychedelic beauties and ethnic folklore.

10-14 June: Rebel Up @ Outernational Friend:Ship tour in Berlin & Hamburg

4 day tour in Germany: with 3 gigs in Berlin & Hamburg with Praed, Spiritzcualic Enhancement Center, Alexa D!Saster and more guests!

PRAED
Founded by Raed Yassin and Paed Conca in 2006, “Praed” is a band whose musical oeuvre can be described as a mixture of Arabic popular music, free jazz, and electronics.
In the same year, the band made its first public appearance in Al Maslakh festival in Switzerland, immediately followed by a concert at the Irtijal festival in Beirut. Since then, the band has frequented numerous international music festivals and toured intensively world-wide, spanning Japan, Europe and Canada. Through these endeavors, the band has created a large global network with other renowned musicians as musical collaborators.

The duo’s body of work mainly explores the terrain of Arabic popular music (“Shaabi”) and its interconnectedness with other psychedelic and hypnotic musical genres in the world, such as free jazz, space jazz, and psychedelic rock among others. Since its inception, Praed has shown a very keen interest in this music as a medium that reflects Egyptian society’s complicated fabric. Through the research it conducted, the band began to discover a strong cultural connection between “Shaabi” sounds and the “Mouled” music is played in religious trance ceremonies. The hypnotizing psychedelic effect that was embedded in this genre also triggered thoughts around its similarity to other popular music in the world that employ forms of sonic delirium, such as free jazz and psychedelic rock.

Spiritczualic Enhancement Center
Like an infinite circle whose center is everywhere and circumference is nowhere, the Spiritczualic Enhancement Center is an outer-national musical caravan, meandering in a world of free-beat. Their eclectic ingredients create an alchemical soup ranging from jazz-infused atavistic-futurism to frequency meditation. Featuring original artworks exploring the realms of syncretism, environments are brought to life via live-drawing projections and spaces transformed into temples of spontaneity. Creating soundscapes that glimpse into synchronistic magic, the bizarre participants of this ensemble remain agnostic: are they magicians, or merely tricksters? The band was founded on Christmas 2017, by secretly transforming the backroom of an abandoned Ottoman building adjacent to the Old City of Jerusalem into a temporary musical space.

Within the two weeks of its existence, the Center morphed into an ever-evolving and collaborative idea. Like a caravan which collects participants as it travels, a growing group of ‘outernational’ musicians are being magnetized. Carrying the Spiritczualic Enhancement Center within themselves, they gather on occasion for recording and performing. Free beat.

Friday 23 Nov > Rebel Up @ concert night in BRASS w/ Los Orioles + Spiritczualic Enhancement Center, Bxl

Concert night on friday in BRASS cultural centre in Forest.
2 bands on the programme and 2 dj’s!

Los Orioles (CH)
Like a gang roaming the world, the seven Swiss musicians of Los Orioles seem to have used wherever they went: the cumbia in Colombia, the dub in Jamaica, the rhythms and the guitars of West Africa, but also the most alternative whimsical francophone songs (we think of the Brigitte Fontaine / Areski Belkacem duo). Sung, rapped or declaimed lyrics that wander in an endless reverb amidst a precious selection of grooves from around the world.

Spiritczualic Enhancement Center (DE/IS)

In their physical form, their existence lasted only two weeks, confined in an abandoned Ottoman building, at the foot of the walls of ancient Jerusalem. Today in exile, the Spiritczualic Enhancement Center is a free-beat resonance field, an evolving and eclectic set of different cities and countries – they prefer the term ‘international’.
In concert, four to ten musicians play a strange and ritual instrumental music, based on spontaneity and improvisation. After a series of concerts at the Fusion Festival (Germany), Outernational Days (Bucharest) and at the New Hamburg Festival, as well as in various concert venues in Europe, they have just announced three upcoming releases: ‘Transporting Salt’ on the American label Crash Symbols; ‘Who Corrupted Our Wave, Back in 1969?’ on the post-Babylonian label Kinship; and a vinyl, ‘Me and My Students Have Reached Higher Levels’ on the Paris label Akuphone, scheduled for early 2019.

◊ FANNA-FI-ALLAH
This seven-man company from Pakistan & Canada is celebrating the Pakistani qawwali tradition – an ancient form of Sufi religious music from Asia – such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan did in the 80s-90s. And although they have been active for 20 years, the band seems to break through this year with a wider audience.

◊ RUDRESH MAHANTHAPPA & the Indo-Pak Coalition
Pitchfork recently described his style as ‘jaw-dropping’ and called him ‘one of the finest saxophonists going’. AllMusic also lauded and titled: “One of the strongest voices of the jazz scene.” His latest album ‘Agrima’ reflects ‘the vibrant presence of Indian rhythmic and melodic elements in a charged, modern improvisational framework born of the New York jazz scene’.
