20:30 – 21:30: Muluni (Live Concert – Wild Twee Folk voice & Guitar) 🎃 Muluni is a genuine fruit swollen by the land. It doesn’t matter if it has grown under contaminated illegal waste dump land or if we are talking about the Prip’jat country side. After a short pause, involved in different musical projects, Muluni has decided to take control of his music writing and in April 2019 released his first soloist composition “Mi vida es un pollo fritto” produced by Golden Catrame: – https://goldencatrame1.bandcamp.com/album/mi-vida-es-un-pollo-fritto – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDcO1Ew7_88

with concerts by La Yegros (AR), Daniel Dzidzonu (TG/BE), SUSOBRINO (BE/BO), Nuri (TN) and Rebel Up DJ’s.
Daniel Dzidzonu A powerful trumpet player with roots in Togo, and proud of them too: he’s been known to wear a Mobutu hat and has coined in jest the slogan ‘Make Africa Great Again’. His highly infectious Afrobeat, however, is an extremely faithful interpretation, influenced by such greats as Fela Kuti and Tony Allen, Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela of course, Salif Keita, and Mory Kanté. He’s finally completed his first ‘full’ album which he will present. We are expecting a lot of people both in front of the stage and on it. Video and new one!
La Yegros A thrilling blend of folktronica and ‘nu cumbia’. The Argentinean Mariana, aka Là Yegros, offers delightful, highly danceable sounds built upon cumbia, chamamé and other folk influences with an injection of electronica. Hence the term ‘folktronica’. She has recently completed work on her new CD, ‘Suelta’ (Salvation). And you’re sure to know her from her summer hit & video ‘Viene De Mi‘.
Rebel Up Records showcase evening! > > >
Susobrino is the alter ego of 24-year-old producer and instrument collector Bart Van Obbergen. His Bolivian roots have inspired his passion for exotic sounds, especially traditional South American percussive music. He blends his own field recordings and other music with digital ingredients into a rhythmic and energetic soundtrack.
Nuri released the LP ‘Drup’ in collaboration with Tunisian label Shouka: a tribute to his Tunisian heritage, with percussion and vocals from all over the African continent, and all that in a digital mix, an ‘amalgam of then and now.’ Video here.
Rebel Up DJ’s you know the drill: global sounds from all directions to shake to!
