Sat 1 June: Rebel Up warmup @ Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek, Ekko, Utrecht

Cosmosis presents a series of concerts with the most special pop music from non-Western countries. What can you expect? No traditional world music, but urgent and danceable future music from distant countries.

Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek
Two years after the great success of the single “Nem Kaldi”, psych-pop sensation Derya Yildirim & Grup Şimşek finally released the long-awaited debut album “Kar Yağar” on Bongo Joe Records. And it was well worth the wait! The distinctive sound of the bağlama, the great voice of Derya Yildirim and the band makes the whole more modern, more danceable and more psychedelic. A hymn for the rich history of the Anatolian folk rock, restored and translated into the 21st century. They are coming to Ekko Utrecht just a week after the album comes out. Not to be missed!


Warmup & cooling down tunes in Turkish, Anatolian and Levantine sounds by Rebel Up SebCat.

Sat 12 Oct Rebel Up! @ Beursschouwburg Bxl w/ Shangaan Electro (SA)

12 oct 2013

Great concert & global concert & party night coming up this saturday 12 October in the central Brussels Beursschouwburg! This night is organised by Beursschouwburg and the Ancienne Belgique as a cultural collaboration for exciting nights during this cultural year.

Shangaan Electro has already played Brussels 2 times before (at Ateliers Claus and Recyclart) but if you have missed these awesome shows or just want to see and dance again to their wild electro marimba sounds, this is your chance 🙂
This outfit hails from the townships around Johannesburg, South Africa, though originally these folks and their Shangaan/Tsonga music style come from the north-eastern Limpopo area, land of red earth and tribal culture. Started by leader Richard Mthetwa aka Nozinja (or Dog) who stopped his mobile phone business to pursue music with MIDI instruments, warped voice samples and hyperkinetic rhythms with traditional Tsongadisco, Shangaan Electro means full dancefloor action where the Tshe Tsha Boys and Nkata Mawewe will show you their fastest legbending and hipshaking moves. Think you can dance to this? Just try or die, check this out >


support by Belgian indiepop band Témé Tan with their heavy tropical dreamy sounds to kick off the night.

We’ll be playing an eclectic South African set, with unheard Shangaan sounds, Tsonga disco, Soweto funk and more. Perhaps we might already start at 21h to warm up with an eclectic indie/globaldelica set.

timetable:
21:00 doors Zilveren zaal/Silver Room + roof terrace
22:00 Témé Tan
23:00 Shangaan Electro
00:00 DJ set Rebel Up!
