Live acts >

KEL ASSOUFTamashek rock, BXL
Out of nostalgia and the loneliness of the desert, Brussels based band Kel Assouf builds music around the Touareg Tamashek culture and the fight against discrimination. Key figure Aboubacar ‘Anana’ Harouna, a fledged tamasheq from Niger, speaks with his guitar, and uses it as a means to claim his rights without bloodshed. With one foot in the desert and the other in the urban jungle, Anana writes about events from the Sahara to here, about life in exile and about freedom, peace and respect for all peoples in the world. After their first album ‘Tin Hinane’ (in 2010) and second album ‘Tikounen’ (2016), Kel Assouf evolved into a new sound on their new album ‘Black Tenere’, released earlier this month on Glitterbeat Records. Tunisian producer Sofyann Ben Youssef immersed the band in a surprisingly contemporary production and sound, which expresses a cry of impotence against violence, injustice and pollution in the world. The result? Desert rock with stirring drums, mesmerizing guitar riffs, psychedelic melodies and Tamasheg vocals. African rhythms played by rock musicians, bring Kel Assouf to the dance floor, somewhere between Brussels and Niamey.

Ibaakuelectronic Senegal sounds, Dakar
Born in Dakar, originally from Casamance, Ibaaku is a prolific artist; not only a producer but also a multi-instrumentalist, author, composer & radio host. Hip hop, beat, afro-futurism & experimental electronic music are blended with Senegalese references & remixed local sounds to represent the major influences of his first opus album ‘Alien Cartoon’. Let yourself go on the Seneg-Alien’s space shift to feel the unique power of cosmic Dakar nights! He will be joined by his Brussels VJ sidekick Ben Richard on live visuals.

Mon 11 March > Rebel Up SebCat @ Kel Assouf concert, Het Depot, Leuven

Out of nostalgia and the loneliness of the desert, Brussels based band Kel Assouf builds music around the Touareg Tamashek culture and the fight against discrimination. Kel Assouf brings songs about life in exile and about freedom, peace and respect for all peoples in the world.

Key figure Aboubacar ‘Anana’ Harouna, a fledged tamasheq from Niger, speaks with his guitar, and uses it as a means to claim his rights without bloodshed. With one foot in the desert and the other in the urban jungle, Anana writes about events from the Sahara to here.

After their first album ‘Tin Hinane’ (which appeared on IglooMondo in 2010) and their second album ‘Tikounen’ (on Igloo/Zephyrus), Kel Assouf evolved into a new sound. Tunisian producer Sofyann Ben Youssef immersed the band in a surprisingly contemporary production and sound on ‘Black Tenere’, ust released on the international Glitterbeat label, which expresses a cry of impotence against violence, injustice and pollution in the world.

The result? Desert rock with stirring drums, mesmerizing guitar riffs and Tamasheg vocals. African rhythms, played by rock musicians, bring Kel Assouf to a dance floor, somewhere between London and Niamey.

Thu 14 Feb > Rebel Up SebCat & Drache Musicale dj support @ Glitterbeat presents: Kel Assouf album launch, Ancienne Belgique, Bxl

Hello all!

Big thanks to those who came out in full force to our Festa Afro Tuga night, what an amazing night it was!

This thursday, Rebel Up SebCat & Drache Musicale will spin warm up & afterparty tunes at the album launch of Brussels based tuareg rock band Kel Assouf in Ancienne Belgique. On friday 15 feb their album ‘Black Tenere’ will be released on the international label Glitterbeat, so this is the true avant premiere!

About that: After their acclaimed album Tikounen, Kel Assouf return with an even more transformative collection: Black Tenere. Produced by the band’s keyboardist Sofyann Ben Youssef, the mastermind behind the highly touted AMMAR 808, the new album strips things back to a power trio lineup and focuses on the crackling, forward-looking energy of Nigerien front man Anana Ag Haroun’s next level Kel Tamashek (Tuareg) rock songs, aided by percussionist Olivier Penu.
Listen here to the opening tune or check out this live video from a few months ago.

Tickets: 15€ presale or at the door.
