this thursday evening, Rebel Up SebCat travels to Amsterdam together with Bxl jazz-groove-dub band Azmari. A concert night at the salon sonora of Mezrab venue.
Azmari will present their new album Maelstrom, just released earlier this month on Sdban Records, a mighty dive into jazz meets groove on a heavy sea bed of dub and oriental scales. DJ support before & after by Rebel Up SebCat.
In the aftermath of the devastating earthquakes in the High Atlas region of Morocco, we will run a fundraiser relief action at Rebel Up for the next 2 weeks.
All digital purchases of below mentioned releases will be donated to the NGO Karama Solidarity, who are based here in Molenbeek around the block from where we are based. Karama means ‘dignity’ in arabic. The NGO is run by Brussels Moroccan citizens and volunteers and is active in Morocco and in the regions that have been hit the hardest.
Donations will be used to help victims in Morocco meet the most urgent needs immediately detected on the ground by Karama’s teams. Currently, the victims need medical care, food but also resettlement. Hundreds of thousands of Moroccans of all ages no longer have a roof over their heads and have lost all or part of their families. Karama prefers purchases made locally, which require less logistics than imports and are less expensive and which also help the local economy.
The 3 releases where the digital proceeds will be donated to Karama >>>
Cheb Runner – Tagnawit, the electronic gnawa EP by Moroccan producer Cheb Runner from Agadir with the Brussels gnawa maalem masters Driss Filali and Hicham Bilali. Last week, we found 10 last vinyl copies of Tagnawit tucked away in our stock. Better be quick to order as these are really the last vinyls! Also we lowered the price for the digital EP to 3€, but paying more is very much appreciated for this fundraiser action. https://chebrunner.bandcamp.com/album/tagnawit-ep
The Marockin Brass project by Luc Mishalle, with Moroccan, Benin and Brussels musician focusing on gnawa and jazz. We lowered the price of the digital album to 4€, paying more is again very much appreciated. Also we lowered the prices for the vinyl to 8€ and the CD for 6€. https://lucmishallemarockinbrass.bandcamp.com/album/beats-pieces
