Wed 7 June > Africa Negra concert @ Muziekpublique, Bxl > Sao Tomé Afro funk

Africa Negra in Brussels!
The legendary Sao Tomé band, only show in Belgium @ Muziekpublique.

The band is extremely renowned in the lusophone African countries and its worldwide diaspora, be it Europe or North and South America (Colombia especially!), and are loved for their own inimitably guitar based style of heavenly mellowed São Tomé Rumba, Soukous or Socopé, with blissful hints of Highlife. Their first three records are highly sought after by record collectors and unsung gems of african insular music. If you are not familiar with it, here are a few of their classics of our own choice > Carambola, Que Santomé, Nao Nao Senhor.

They have undergone through several different formations; but never really stopped and their current formations includes three members from the early days  (the charismatic lead singer João Seria, lead guitar player Leonildo Barros and bass guitarist Albertino). In 2014 they celebrated their 40th anniversary and that brought  the band back to their brother country of Portugal for a few performances (Lisbon at Club B’leza and FMM Festival in Sines), something which hadn’t happened since the early 80’s as well as a historical first appearance at in Berlin at the Weltmusik Festival. They had never played outside of Portugal before; even if they kept busy in their home country. Here the video of their performance on national television.

We made a special Rebel Up edit for this concert, check it here and free to download! 🙂

Fri 23 Sept @ Afro Groove party with Afrikän Protoköl (BF/BE), La Tentation, Bxl

Hello Bxl,

This Friday @ La Tentation. Afro Groove night with Burkinabé Belgo band Afrikän Protoköl. Documentary Release + Concert + DJ Set Party

Afrikän Protoköl is the Afro Jazz Sextet started by Belgian saxophonist Guillaume Van Parys. After meeting with drummer Moïse Ouattara from Burkina Faso, he developed a special style based on traditional rhythms from Burkina Faso and West Africa. Jazzy riffs, grooves and improvisations melt together into what we might call a “warm and conscious cross-cultural fusion.” With a rhythmic section from Burkina Faso and horns from Belgium and Ivory Coast, Afrikän Protoköl brings a very colorful and lively show. Better get ready for some heat!

Before the show, a documentary about their trip & recording session in Burkina Faso. For the afterparty, Rebel Up! SebCat will take to the decks with some pure African dancefloor selections

Programme :
20h30 Opening
21h00 Documentary release
22h00 Concert Afrikän Protoköl
00h00 DJ Set Rebel Up! SebCat
