Hope you had great holiday period & parties.

Hosted by Rebel Up! with special guest > > > >
Daniel Fernando Wahl alias Daferwa was born in Tübingen and raised in a Mexican-
German household. From an early age on he got in touch with a broad variety of Latin-American music as well as Rap, Hip Hop, House, Reggae, Dancehall, Dub and UK Sounds. His sets are innovative and rhythmically trips. From melodic and funky Beats, to hip moving Dembow Sounds to syncopated and percussive 4x 4, or halftime bouncy stuff. Strictly spoken – he doesn’t gives a shit about genres. Since 2005 Daferwa has been actively contributing to Cologne’s nightlife. In 2007, he founded the MASH IT UP! platform in Cologne; in 2009 he became resident DJ and
freelancing autor for WDR Funkhaus Europa (Germanys N°1 public radio station for Global Music) writing programs and conducting in-depth interviews. He’s of the main honcho’s behind and German global parties such as Mash It Up! (Cologne) and Global Player (Krefeld & Dusseldorf) . Having played many renowned festivals & parties such as Sziget (HU), Fusion Festival (DE) and supporting many international live bands and artists, he knows how to get a global party going. Be ready for some Mexican wildness with German precision 🙂

Steenstraat 8 Rue des Pierres
This saturday our international friends of El Pulpo Collective are organising a special night in La Tentation, helped by Rebel Up! though we’ll not be there this night, as we are in Budapest for WOMEX.
The evening starts early with a concert by Galician folk musicians Narf & Uxia.
El Pulpo night will then kick off with special guests Los Demonios de la Cumbia!!!
This is the band project by DJ Kumbia Beats aka Marco Bustamente, resident of Antwerp but originally from Beni, Bolivia. This insatiable traveller, multi-instrumentalist and producer has formed a strong reputation over the last decade or so in the indigenous folk & electronic music scene of Bolivia. Los Demonios de la Cumbia is the result of a mix between 2 worlds, as they blend alternative electronic styles like moombathon with Colombian cumbia and Bolivian folk. Through this mix of traditional instruments and electronic effects one will hear the different Latin American nationalities represented in this group; Cuba, Bolivia, Chili, Paraguay and beyond. Fiesta pura with these demons!
Afterwards the DJ’s of Groovalizacion Radio /El Pulpo will provide all the tropical tunes you need to dance the whole night!
Groovalizacion Radio is a web radio station that started in 2008 and consists of journalists and cultural activists presenting shows with music from allover the globe, from traditional to urban sounds.
Gaetano Dub from Liege, who brings the wildest latin & roots tunes and Venezuelan DJ Jo Selector from Bruxelles will give you all the latin & african flavours mixed up for a heavy session of dancing.

Another fun Contrabanda night coming up in Bonnefooi for all sounds latino, afro & global!
After our last fully packed night with Uproot Andy, we like to present > > >
DJ Cucurucho (ES/PT) (Groovalizacion Radio)
DJ Cucurucho, co-founder and selector of international Groovalizacion Radio, designs a DJ SET blending contemporary ethnic music all over the world from the vintage sounds to the tropical bass. Best contemporary and classic dance music together from wildly different times and places, connecting “East” and “West”, acoustic and electronic, traditional and hyper-modern, Dj Cucurucho creates hybrid sets, making “Ancient-Futurist” groove collages!
Support by the Rebel Up! dj’s.
what Bonnefooi says about us: These guys are some of Brussels’ most underestimated Global Groove Dj’s, with a musical network from Rajasthan to New Yorkistan and a musical selection that goes even farther and deeper into tropicalism and obscure global dance music. Sebcat is also a fulltime musical nexus, the way he blends his global grooves together in a party he also re-arranges, feeds and stimulates musical culture: as a re-distributor of records (importing Sahel Sounds records of Sublime Frequencies), in writings and research (check his writings for Gonzo Circus or his compilation on Sublime Frequencies titled *Rajasthan Street Music*) or as a curator of countless parties and concerts. Leblanc is an experienced dj & collector for the more rougher contemporary street dance music from around & below the equator. Also a distributor of African field recording records, curator of global music documentaries and a darn great cook of global dishes. Whatever you will get from him, in sound or food, it will be filled with specials spices and hotness. Caliente!
