◊ 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’.

sebcat rebel up
DJ SEBCAT (Rebel Up! Bxl)

On his own tonight as LeBlanc is away on business… Bonnefooi says > This guy is one 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. Whatever you will get from him, in sound or food, it will be filled with specials spices and hotness. Caliente!
